MADRID (BNS): Indra, in partnership with the company Atlas Elektronik, will be responsible for providing the German Navy's Braunschweig class (K-130) corvettes with five satellite communications (satcom) terminals.

The three-year project covers manufacturing, integration and testing, electronic documentation, and training for crews.

The company won the contract in a request for proposals involving several different European manufacturers of satcom terminals, finally resulting in the selection of Indra's TNX-100 terminal, according to the company news release.

Developed by the company, this terminal has already been implemented in several of Spain's most sophisticated vessels, such as the Juan Carlos I strategic projection ship and the F-100 frigates.

The system, which has two stabilised 1.5-meter-diameter dishes, is capable of simultaneously transmitting and receiving up to 4 Mbps.

Specialised in satellite communications, specifically for moving platforms, Indra has already supplied satcom systems to the German Navy.

The new contract is the latest in a series of projects begun in 2003 through which the German Navy has commissioned the company to implement electronic defense systems in these same corvettes.
