New flyaway and portable antenna products from VertexRSI brand offer flexible lightweight communications in C, X, Ku and Ka-bands.

General Dynamics C4 Systems is proud to introduce four new antennas to the commercial portable antenna market. The four new antennas, produced by the Company’s VertexRSI brand at its Kilgore, Texas facility, complement the extensive VertexRSI product line of fixed, mobile and portable antennas for commercial and military applications.

1.2m 1138-LT
The VertexRSI lightweight 1.2-meter motorized flyaway antenna (1.2m 1138-LT) is designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in Ku-band. This flyaway antenna consists of a precision compression molded reflector, auto-acquisition cable-driven elevation-over-azimuth positioner and an aluminum feed support structure. The antenna provides auto-acquisition of satellites with positive identification. The antenna is packaged in two portable cases; the feed may be supplied in a separate optional hand case.

1.5m SF-LT and 1.8m SF-LT
The VertexRSI lightweight 1.5-meter (1.5m SF-LT) and 1.8-meter (1.8m SF-LT) motorized flyaway antennas are designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, X, Ku and Ka-band. Each flyaway antenna consists of a carbon fiber composite reflector, a cable-driven elevation-over-azimuth positioner and an aluminum/CFRP support structure. This results in a low-weight, motorized antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions. The interchangeable feeds are palletized for quick, easy removal and replacement, allowing the end-user to effectively change frequency bands in the field within minutes. Each complete antenna system, including a single feed and a motorized positioner, is packaged in four robust, portable cases. Multiple antennas are readily available from L-band to Ka-band.

1.8m SF
The VertexRSI lightweight 1.8-meter SF antenna is designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, X, Ku and Ka-band. This portable antenna consists of a composite reflector and aluminum tripod base mount. This results in a low-weight antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions. The complete 1.8-meter antenna system, including a single feed, is packaged in multiple portable cases depending on options ordered. Click here to download the datasheet
