GDSatcom Antenna 9.2m Ka-Band Rx/Tx 4-Port CP Feed motorized with Pedestal Mount (NEW)

Brand: GD Satcom

Large diameter Ka-band antennas require unique design criteria which General Dynamcis SATCOMTechnologies has successfully demonstrated with both the 9.2 and 13.2 meter products. Items such as reflector surface accuracy, antenna/ feed design, structural antenna stiffness and integrity, thermal effects, anti-icing, HPA phase combining, monopulse tracking, installation and alignments and hub integration all require special engineering expertise at Ka-band. SATCOM Technologies has proven their expertise in the above areas and has earned the position as a preferred antenna system provider and integrator to a number of major satellite broadcasting companies by providing in excess of more than fifty systems of this type over the past five years alone.
