Satellite Communications

The Royal Signals are responsible for the provision of all of the Army's tactical satellite ground terminals, providing strategic and operational satellite communications for all land-based Headquarters.


The SMALL SATCOM capability consists of a SWE-DISH CCT-120 satellite ground terminal, owned by Paradigm.

The ground terminal uses the SKYNET5 network to provide a service to users on operations worldwide. The satellite ground terminal is reasonably lightweight, transportable within an airframe and can be set up by a single trained operator in less than 30 minutes.

It is currently in service in support of Operation HERRICK.
