AN/TSC-54
Satellite Communications Terminal

The AN/TSC-54 is a satellite terminal originally designed for quick-reaction use with a military SATCOM system. It is completely transportable in two C-130 cargo aircraft. The AN/TSC-54 requires only a few hours for assembly, installation, and the initiation of operations. Terminal elements break down into packages, none weighing more than 2.7 MT (3 t), for helicopter airlift; total weight is 10.2 MT (11.2 t). The terminal also is usable in a fixed mode and uses additional multiplexing equipment in this mode. The AN/TSC-54 is considered obsolete as a mobile terminal.
