System design and development of a complete high-performance small terminal operating in Ku and Ka band, for ultralight aircraft and UAVs.
Mese: Dicembre 2020
Client: STECCOM (Russia)
Description: Design and implementation of a X-band Rx-only feed, to be installed on an antenna already existing on the site. The subsystem includes the Horn and the sub-reflector, developed to adapt the RF beam to the existing optic on site, the monopulse tracking system, the septum polarizer and the filters. The sub-reflector is mechanically connected to the feed by means of struts, to allow self-alignment of the antenna during the installation phases.
Client: Thales Alenia Space (Italy)
Description: Transformation of an antenna operating only in the L band, existing on the customer’s site, into an system capable of operating alternately in the L, S and X bands, with the creation of a new feed and maintaining the existing main reflector. The band change is carried out via a remote control without any other mechanical or radioelectric intervention by operators on the antenna. The transformation also includes, on the customer’s site, the mechanical and electrical adaptation required on the existing antenna, the installation of the new feed and the construction of the equipment necessary for remote control from the control room.
