The Paradigm Swarm45 is an extremely compact, rugged, lightweight and discreet system providing superior data rates. Complete with a low-profile mount, the Swarm45 is fully portable and quick to deploy and stow.
The system is designed around the PIM (Paradigm Interface Module) which hosts a modem for use on both Velocity and Evolution networks and provides on board monitor and control to manageable terminal components.

The Swarm45 provides everything needed for straightforward setup and pointing, allowing the user to be operational in less than 5 minutes. This simple, intuitive and tool-free deployment/setup method involves audio and visual pointing aids and provides an effective method of acquiring the satellite without the extra bulk of motors and controllers.
As a single integrated system, the Swarm45 can withstand harsh environmental conditions. It has comparable performance to a 65cm parabolic antenna and can be assembled and operated in half the height making it more unobtrusive and less affected by wind.
Wet performance is also greatly increased when compared to a parabolic as the signal passes through the antenna only once, reducing rain attenuation. Additionally, the flat panel design sheds water easily and avoids water pooling.
To increase flexibility and adaptability, Paradigm also offer a complete range of interface options.
The Swarm45 is packaged in a single hard case which can be carried as airline hand baggage. Other packaging options including a backpack are also available.
