Info

SlingShot Appliqué

SlingShot Vehicle System VHF 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 Vehicle Antenna

New SlingShot Vehicle Antenna

The SlingShot Vehicle Antenna is omni-directional, so will maintain satellite communication, no matter which way you are heading. It has been tested at speeds in excess of 80mph (128kph) without loss of voice or data communications.

SlingShot Vehicle Power

SlingShot-UPSU

The SlingShot Vehicle system is powered via the SlingShot UPSU. The UPSU can be run directly from the vehicle, plug into the cigarette lighter, or be run from mains.The UPSU gives power to the Appliqué which, in turn, powers the Antenna.
