Info

SlingShot Appliqué

SlingShot Maritime System UHF Applique

The SlingShot Appliqué is the heart of the system. Weighing only between 489 g (UHF) and 550 g (VHF) it converts RF to commercial satellite frequency, working with the majority of in-service radios. Any Crypto is untouched by the Appliqué and is therefore maintained.

SlingShot Maritime Antenna

SlingShot Maritime System L-Band Antenna

The SlingShot Maritime Antenna is omni-directional, so will maintain satellite communication, no matter which way you are heading. It has been tested at speeds up to 40 Knots with high-speed turns (74 kph) without loss of voice or data communications.

SlingShot Maritime Power

SlingShot-UPSU

The SlingShot Maritime and Vehicle systems are powered via the SlingShot UPSU. The UPSU can be run directly from the craft, plug into a cigarette lighter, or be run from mains. The UPSU powers the Appliqué which, in turn, powers the Antenna, which can be pole mounted or fixed with a magnetic plate.
