Product Overview: 

NAL Research Corporation’s QUICKSILVER QS-100 terminal delivers the latest Iridium Certus 100 mid-band service in a compact, rugged package for globally available on-the-move (OTM), over-the-horizon (OTH), and beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) connectivity. Suitable for both standalone usage and embedded platform integration, it employs a small detachable passive, low-gain, omni-directional antenna, simplifying low-profile and low-visibility installations. The QUICKSILVER QS-100’s flexible integration architecture makes it the ideal upgrade from narrowband solutions to provide mid-band throughput performance, anywhere around the world, for file transfer, command and control (C2), telemetry, diagnostic monitoring, and other data transport applications.
