AvL’s 2.5m Premium SNG/MIL vehicle mount/transportable antenna system is WGS ready as it enables simultaneous X and Ka communications and is built to provide maximum operational flexibility to the tactical user. The antenna is also L, Ku and DBS capable. The antenna is designed to mount to a small MILSATCOM trailer and the reflector is shaped to enable helo-lift of the antenna-trailer integrated system. The Model 2510’s integrated antenna/positioner/feed/electronics hardware makes this MILSATCOM antenna true quick-deploy with operational status achieved in less than 15 minutes. The need to manually reconfigure the antenna to change bands or polarization is eliminated through the use of the simultaneous dual-band X/Ka feed.
