MOST VSAT communication in Medevac helicopter

In situations far away from the nearest trauma level 1 hospital, medical air evacuation (Medevac) with live broadband MOST VSAT communication is a life saver. Wide band communication between helicopter medical crew and the hospital is essential in the first “Golden Hour” of the event. Studies indicate that the survival rate is higher if the correct treatment is given during the first hour from the onset of the event. In a Medevac service, the probability of surviving the event and recovering is heavily dependent upon the support of hospital experts, until arrival at the trauma level 1 hospital. Hence the work of Medevac team with the hospital team through the live broadband VSAT communication service is a life saver.

Demonstrations took place in LAHAK aviation in June 2020 included:

  • Intelsat service: 2MB IB / 2MB OB on 60°E – 33e, symmetrical internet connectivity on board the helicopter. Intelsat service is by far better performance and cost effective compering to other solutions.
  • Gilat Telecom ground station: 2.4m dish, MOST propriety 19” modem and internet connectivity.
  • MOST MKu30H antenna and IDU [Ku BUC, MOST propriety airborne modem].

MOST CEO, Zack Berejik said: MOST supply broadband solutions for fixed wing aircrafts and UAV’s for many years. Now – after years of R&D we offer In Flight Connectivity [IFC] for rotary wing aircrafts. MKu30H expends rotary wing operation envelop and capabilities to new boundaries we couldn’t offer before. We are excited to offer together with our partners in Intelsat Globalized Network and Gilat telecom, products and services that push the limits of VSAT communication performance in variety of fixed wing aircrafts and rotary wing aircrafts.


MOST is one stop shop, for advanced mobile satellite technology. All MOST antennas and modems are developed and manufactured “in house”. MOST already accumulated two years of experience in delivering MKu30H Heli VSAT systems directly to production line of a large helicopter company. MKu30H is RTCS DO160-G certified and can be adapted to other civil and military applications such as ISR, HLS, and mission management.
