AN/STC-185 Satellite Transportable Terminal (STT) (United States), Satellite systems and equipment
The AN/TSC-185 terminal is an over-the-horizon communications trailer package developed for At-the-Quick-Halt tactical communications applications.
The AN/TSC-185 Satellite Transportable Terminal (STT) offers Ku- and Ka-band operation on a single trailerised platform. It supports a variety of modems, multiple carriers and data rates from 4 Mbits/s up to 155 Mbits/s. The equipment is IESS, XTAR, WGS and DSCS compliant, and features a user interface that is common across all of the contractor's Warrior products.According to the contractor the AN/TSC-185 improves on previous designs by incorporating proprietary active compensation tracking techniques that positively track out the effects of wind while permitting 'significant' platform weight reduction. The resulting trailer frame absorbs more of the off-road shock and vibration while also providing increased rack and storage space capacity for additional equipment, systems or fuel. Active compensation tracking also eliminates the necessity for outriggers, permitting simple jackstands to provide stabilisation as needed, and facilitating quicker setup and tear-down.
