L & S-Band Link for Mil-Aero

ViaLite‘s L & S-Band fiber optic link is suitable for Mil-Aero applications and data-intensive tasks in the Telemetry market. It can be used to transport military and aeronautical L- and S-Band signals between military bases (test ranges and firing ranges) and control rooms, over fiber.

The link ensures there is no signal loss or positive gain, thus allowing for increased link margin. – This can be a concern, especially with S-Band.

  • ViaLite link covers S-Band (2200-2400 MHz) and L-Band (1435-1535 MHz)
  • Ultra-wide dynamic range
  • Increased link margin for a much larger range between near and far field operation

    Hardware formats

    The link is available in several formats:

    – Single rack chassis card / Dual rack chassis card (Rx/Rx, Tx/Tx or Tx/Rx)

    A fully populated 19” 3U ViaLiteHD rack chassis supports up to 26 links and accepts 13 RF cards, plus an SNMP card and dual power supply modules.  A 1U chassis accepts three RF cards or two RF cards with an SNMP card.

    The chassis cards are available with the ViaLiteHD blind mate option, which allows all cables to be connected at the rear of the chassis when installed. It also allows any configuration changes to be completed without disturbing the connections and very fast changeover of cards; enabling five nines reliability.

    – Blue OEM Link

    The ViaLite standalone Blue OEM Link offers a compact, single link solution.

    – Blue2 Link

    The Blue2 Link is a dual-solution OEM which can be setup as 2x transmitters, 2x receivers or a transceiver, as required.

    – Yellow OEM Link

    The Yellow OEM Link has been designed for system integrators and equipment manufacturers to build the link into their own designs.

    A range of support modules and accessories is also available, including indoor rack chassis units and weatherproof outdoor enclosures.
