DecaWave's Precise Location and Communication Chip

The Simple Way of Getting Iridium to Play

Having all your communication needs plug-and-play ready—that is the leading idea behind the ITAS Iridium Transceiver Antenna System.

Covering the entire RF and modem integration the ITAS already has the Iridium 9602 SBD, the Iridium antenna, serial data interface and the power regulation circuit on-board. A M12/8 connector interfaces to the customer hardware.

Designed to communicate Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) it is possible to send Mobile Originated (MOSBD) and Mobile Terminated (MT-SBD) messages.

Since there is no RF cable routing outside of the ITAS unit, higher network performance is achieved due to the elimination of RF cable loss
