Paradigm’s SWARM950 Terminal Now Intelsat Certified

Paradigm’s SWARM950 is now an Intelsat qualified terminal, offering greater flexibility to operatives who need high performing, ultra-portable VSAT terminals with military-level security.

Authorised to operate on the Intelsat Flex service, this latest qualification complements Paradigm’s existing range of terminals with TRANSEC/FIPS140-2 capability, which includes the compact, rugged HORNET950, popular with military units and special operational forces across the globe.

SWARM950, powered by Paradigm’s proprietary PIM technology, offers extreme user-simplicity through a common terminal interface that has revolutionised the ease of pointing and operation. The integration of modem, router, satellite alignment tool, management and power distribution, is conducive with rapid deployment and minimal training.

Paradigm’s General Manager, Jon Godfrey, comments, “We’ve seen a significant upturn in demand for our own terminal range since the introduction of the Paradigm Interface Module (PIM), which is leading the industry’s advance towards more intuitive, simple user interfaces. Although we’ve kept the PIM technology terminal-agnostic, our military clients have naturally sought the same level of performance and reliability across their VSAT arsenal and so gravitated towards Paradigm terminals. When you consider this high level of confidence alongside the ruggedness, high throughput, ultra-portability of the SWARM950, it makes for a compelling proposition.”

The SWARM is field-proven by leading military and special operational forces. Jon continues, “The SWARM has an extremely strong record in the field on major networks, so we’re delighted that the extended iDirect950 modem capability has been keenly supported by Intelsat with whom we have a longstanding partnership. This latest qualification supports our objective to give users real confidence, however critical the mission, wherever they are in the world.”
