The General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies lightweight 2.4-meter Quick Deploy antennas are designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, X, Ku and Ka-band. These portable antennas consist of Precision Compression Molded reflectors and a compact aluminum pedestal. This results in a durable antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions.
The unique shape and the accurate reflector surface provide good sidelobe and cross-polarization performance. The antenna system is a Series 1259 and the reflector consists of a four-segment SMC compression molded assembly. Repeatability is maintained with precision registration of the reflector segments and the feed support structure.
The 2.4-meter antenna, including the feed, is packaged in three portable cases.
- Precision compression molded offset reflector
- Compact aluminum pedestal
- Transport cases included
- Two-person assembly in less than 30 minutes
- Captive hardware/fasteners
- No tools required
- Quick adjust positioner
