General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies' lightweight, 2.4-Meter mobile antenna (C240M) has been added to the Company's Ready-to-Go (RTG) line of products.
The Company's RTG program offers customers select SATCOM Technologies standard products with guaranteed "On-the-Shelf" shipping within 30-days after order acceptance.
The C240M antenna is designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, Extended C, X, and Ku band. The mobile antenna consists of a carbon fiber composite reflector (available in either a single or three-piece unit), and back beam mounted on a cable-driven, elevation-over azimuth positioning system. The configuration produces an antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions.
Kim Scott, Business Area Manager for SATCOM Technologies Tactical Terminals, said, "The C240M mobile antenna can be attached to most lightweight vehicles for fast and efficient mobile satellite newsgathering (SNG) applications."
"The unique shape and the accurate reflector surface provide exceptionally low side lobe and cross-polarization performance well within INTELSAT and EUTELSAT requirements."
"In addition, the interchangeable feeds are palletized for quick, easy removal and replacement, allowing users to easily change frequency bands in the field within minutes," Scott said.
