Gilat Will Showcase Its BlackRay Suite Of Solutions For Unmanned Platforms In AUVSI 2014

PETAH TIKVA, Israel, May 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today the availability of BlackRay 300, BlackRay P60 and BlackRay Marine 250 which are part of its BlackRay suite of terminals specifically designed for operations on unmanned platforms.

The antennas also include enhanced accuracy satellite tracking mechanism, providing short initial acquisition and instantaneous re-acquisition time. BlackRay features an efficient SWAP design which is especially suited for compact UAS and USV platforms.
