Thinkom announces VMES FCC Approval of ThinSAT® 300   ThinKom Solutions, Inc.

Torrance, CA, March 12, 2013--ThinKom Solutions, Inc. (ThinKom) a global leader in broadband satellite communication solutions, announced today that the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has granted the first low-profile Vehicle Mounted Earth Station (VMES) license (44 C.F.R. 25.226) for its ThinSAT® 300 on-the-move antenna product.

The license provides ALSAT approval allowing operation on any of the authorized domestic satellites without further license additions or modifications. The license also authorizes the highest uplink Power Spectral Density (PSD) limits approved for such terminals, supporting 18.4 dB/4KHz. This level of spectral efficiency uniquely obviating the need to use costly spread spectrum waveforms.
