The General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies lightweight 2.4- meter flyaway antenna is designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, X and Ku-band. This portable antenna consists of a carbon fiber composite reflector and aluminum support structures. This results in a low-weight antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions.
The unique shape and the accurate reflector surface provide exceptionally low sidelobe and cross-polarization performance well within INTELSAT and EUTELSAT requirements. Repeatability is maintained with precision registration of the nine reflector segments and the feed support structure. The complete antenna system, including a single feed, is packaged in nine robust portable cases.
