Model 17-17A Airborne Terminals
All General Dynamics SOTM products share a legacy of proven, reliable performance on aircraft, ships, fast boats and a variety of military wheeled and tracked vehicles, including HMMWV, Bradley and Stryker. The Model 17-17A terminals share a common technology base, common components, and a common user interface with the other products in the General Dynamics SOTM family (Models 13, 20, and 30 Series).
Key to the performance of any SOTM product is the availability to maintain the link during dynamic platform motion. General Dynamics SOTM products provide worldclass "on satellite" tracking accuracy via combination of integral tracking receiver, gyro stabilization, and inertial measurement unit.
