Ultra-lightweight, VertexRSI brand product transmits and receives in Ku and Ka-bands.

General Dynamics C4 Systems will introduce its newest tactical antenna product, the 1.2-M QDMA (Quick Deploy Motorized Antenna) at NAB 2006 April 24-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas Nevada.

The new 1.2-M QDMA is designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in Ku- and Ka-bands. The portable antenna consists of a segmented composite reflector and cable-driven motorized mount. The new configuration results in an extremely low-weight and 'packable' antenna product with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions.

The 1.2-M QDMA's unique optical shape and accurate reflector surface provide good sidelobe and excellent cross-polarization performance. Repeatability is maintained with precision registration of the nine-piece reflector segments and RF components. The complete 1.2-M QDMA system, including a Stepped Ring Focus (SRF) feed, is packaged in a single transit case (depending upon options ordered). Click here to download the 1.2-M QDMA data sheet.

The new 1.2-M QDMA product will highlight General Dynamics C4 Systems NAB display in booth #OE-320. The booth will include commercial and military satellite communications products and applications from the company's VertexRSI, Prodelin and Gabriel brands including the recently introduced VertexRSI 1.5-M SF and 1.8-M SF antennas.
