MorganFranklin and GATR to Demonstrate First Portable, High-Bandwidth, Low-Power Communication and Broadcast System at SATELLITE

MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- MorganFranklin and GATR Technologies today announced their joint participation in booth #1600 at the SATELLITE 2008 Exhibit, Feb. 25 through 28, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. SATELLITE 2008 is the satellite-enabled communications community's leading conference and exhibition.

GATR will display its transportable, inflatable, high-bandwidth satellite antenna system (GATR-Com). Its unique inflatable design allows it to be carried into locations where a high-bandwidth (large aperture) dish is required and a satellite truck or trailer cannot be deployed. MorganFranklin will provide the reliable communication infrastructure (satellite, RF and IP network integration) that completes the connections (IP-based phone, Internet, broadcast video/audio and/or data) as needed for challenging communication situations such as mobile emergency communications, remote news gathering and broadcasting, and military applications.

"We are pleased to demonstrate and partner with MorganFranklin; the merging of our expertise makes this a win-win scenario for both companies and our customers," said Paul Gierow, president of GATR Technologies.

GATR and MorganFranklin have worked on a number of implementation activities ranging from simple high-speed Internet connectivity via satellite to advanced production-quality video broadcast from remote locations.

"Our combined products offer ideal solutions for emergency response, broadcast and military applications," said David Beering, managing director of Advanced Networks for MorganFranklin. "Uses within these markets are varied. The key is leveraging the compactness and large apertures achievable with the GATR design, and best-of-breed technical solutions from MorganFranklin. The result has been a very high-performance, technically superior satellite/network system that occupies a fraction of the logistical footprint of competing solutions."

About GATR-Com

GATR's high-bandwidth, satellite communications antenna technology (GATR-Com) is ideal for emergency response applications, providing quick recovery when land communication lines are down or compromised, or if satellite communication dishes are destroyed or damaged due to weather or terrorist attack. This technology was designed for military ground use in remote areas with harsh weather and where the movement and installation of large standard rigid satellite antennas is challenging. The patented design combines the transmission power advantages of a large antenna with the low weight and portability of a small aperture antenna. The GATR-Com Antenna weighs less than 13 pounds and either the 1.8 or 2.4 meter (diameter) antenna can be shipped via a single airline checkable case. The antenna plus the communications equipment and cables weighs less than 90 pounds and fits into two (airline checkable) cases.

Incorporated in 2004, GATR Technologies provides Deployable Satellite Solutions, including a patented inflatable antenna, advanced material research and development, and custom engineering services to military, broadcast and public safety markets.
