The main target of the INMA Project is the development of a K-band ground terminal enabled to work with the Inmarsat new satellites and being compatible with the rest of the current satellite constellations. It will be a very innovative product which will allow multi-media communication with ground vehicles in motion; the terminal will cover the Ka-Band service segment which has shown an increasing development in recent years.
The development provides different kind ot technologies due to the multi-function nature of the terminal (antenna, RF, DC, digital systems, real-time software).
The Terminal will be able to track the satellite in an independent way of the vehicle movement, performing full-duplex communication. The basic architecture will provide a flat antenna which combines electronic and mechanical alignment (hybrid or electro-mechanic antenna), taking advantage of the both qualities and bringing like that a low profile and moderate cost system without compromise on features and reliability.
