Additionally, the Gilat SkyEdge IV Taurus-M is a fast-to-deploy and easy-to-operate military modem that sets a new standard for mission flexibility. It’s believed to be smallest modem on the market that offers highly available, high-speed satellite communications for stationary and on-the-move (SOTM) operations.
