Mobile Tracking Antennas

MOBILE TRACKING ANTENNAS

TRACKING ANTENNA – 5M30 – S / X / S+X / L+S BAND

The mobile S-band, X-band or combined S+X-band tracking antennas are designed to meet a wide range of customer requirements. All RF subsystems are conveniently housed on the trailer, together with SSPA and frequency converters, sited as close as possible to the antenna.

Main Features

  • 5.5 m optimized dual shaped antenna
  • Light weight carbon-fiber made reflector panels
  • C130 air-transportable off-road trailer for easy truck hookup
  • Elevation/Azimuth/Tilt pedestal featuring full hemispherical coverage
  • Dual polarized X-band feed (in baseline) for maximum compatibility with all satellites
  • Optimal tracking accuracy thanks to high accuracy monopulse feed and auto-leveling electronic system. Quick tracking acquisition at any elevation angle.

Main Benefits

  • Durability
  • Ease of installation

SHIPBORNE STATIONS – L+C / S / X / KU BAND

The Gyro-stabilized shipborne station can be directly mounted on the ship’s deck for permanent shipborne use, or mounted on a trailer, for mixed shipborne and land-based applications.

Main Features

  • Transmission in L + C, S, X or Ku-band
  • Automatic compensation of ship movement (gyro) (ZODIAC DATA SYSTEMS is equipped with a ship’s movement simulator to test the antennas)
  • Automatic Tracking : Speed 20°/s
  • 3 axes full motion antenna (Azimuth, Elevation, Balance)
  • Diameters available : 4.6 m or 5.5m
  • Deck-mounted or trailer mounted versions
  • Transportable (off road, air)
  • Up Converter, Down Converter and SSPA integrated on trailer
  • Servo: Cortex ACU, ADU, gyro-compass and gyro-meters

Main Benefits

  • Full hemispheric coverage
  • Capability to acquire satellites with AOS at 5°, even with severe roll and pitch angles
  • Quickly deployable ( 2h typical)
