Product description

The Astronode S+ is a ready to install satellite communication device, based on an Astronode S and an Astronode Patch Antenna. It connects to your application via the full Astronode S digital interface or via RS232, both available on the industrial grade board-to-cable connector.


The Astronode S+ sends your data messages, gets them acknowledged by the network and receives your data commands.


Ready to connect. No resources required in electronic and RF design, enabling short time to market.

Small form factor

Integration of our optimized L-Band patch antenna allows for a compact overall size and robust data connection.


  • Environment monitoring
  • Asset monitoring
  • System health monitoring
  • Backup solution for logistics tracking

The Astronode S+ integrates both new applications as well as retrofits existing or in the field applications. It comes in a small form factor enabling discrete installations. Minimum environmental protection against humidity and extreme temperatures must be provided for operation.
