"Our SCAMP terminals will provide the Canadian DND with a protected satellite communications system that is survivable, yet flexible enough to meet their demanding requirements," says Alan Caslavka, vice president and general manager of Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "The SCAMP terminals will enable the DND to take advantage of the expanded communications availability made possible by the launching of the new military AEHF satellites."

Rockwell Collins' SCAMP terminals provide secure, jam-resistant, covert, voice, and data communications. They offer communication for a wide variety of applications and users. The terminals feature Extended Data Rate (EDR) capability that delivers data rates comparable to high quality, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) modems.
