It is a multi-purpose transmit solution, that has a built-in host protected area (HPA) controller for satellite use. This controller also cancels out the need for any additional hardware.

Meanwhile the firm's IRD5200 DVB-S2 SATCOM and ENG integrated receiver / decoder (IRD) is intended for compact SNG flyaway and ENG use. It has multiple inputs, as well as ultra high-frequency (UHF), asynchronous serial interface (ASI), L-band, and internet protocol (IP), making it a versatile receiver option.

An additional SATCOM product offered by VISLINK for the defence market is the FlyDrive, which is a motorised flyaway antenna. This has been created to be used as a semi-permanent vehicle mounted system, as well as a traditional flyaway. The FlyDrive can be taken on a commercial airline if carried in IATA weight-compliant flight cases, meaning it can be deployed worldwide.
