Europe*Star certifies SWE-DISH Suitcase
The SWE-DISH suitcase
Europe*Star and SWE-DISH Satellite Systems have cross-certified each company’s most advanced offers using a new high-performance co-polar feed designed by SWE-DISH to enable its IPT suitcase terminal to be optimized for use with the Europe*Star 1 satellite.
During early July, the companies conducted successful tests, including cross-polar discrimination, to confirm that the IPT Suitcase in co-polar configuration is fully compliant. A terminal fitted with the new co-polar feature was located at SWE-DISH’s headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden, and the test was carried out under the control of Europe*Star’s MOC in Toulouse, France. The performance of the terminal, with a 90cm elliptical antenna, exceeded expectations with an Eb/No of 10.5dB.
