HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- iDirect Government Technologies (iGT), a wholly owned subsidiary of VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), is releasing its newest satellite router, the e150 Integrated Router Board, designed to meet Department of Defense (DoD) satcom requirements for remote sensor monitoring.

The e150 is ideal for sensor applications. The remote features DVB-S2/ACM and time division multiple access (TDMA), basic routing; virtual local area network functionality; and quality of service. It includes spread spectrum for small antenna applications and transmit keyline control for battery power management savings.

Features include:

  • Small form factor that enables smaller terminal design
  • Low weight for maximum portability
  • Spread-spectrum technology provides bandwidth and spectral efficiencies that enable the use of very small antennas
  • Transmit keyline provides for significantly lower power consumption resulting in longer battery life and much lower dissipated heat output
  • Supports all antenna variants and all satellite frequencies
  • Functionality optimized for the sensor market

"The e150 was developed specifically to suit unique military applications and provide our DoD customers with TDMA, QoS and other bandwidth- and power-efficient features to support their overall missions," said Karl Fuchs, iGT Vice President of Technology.
