Patriot Antenna features new orbit tracking, flyaway satellite antennas
Patriot Antenna is showing its new 1.2m inclined orbit tracking antenna systems and its 1.2m backpack flyaway system at Satellite 2009, March 25-27, in Washington, D.C.
The 1.2m inclined orbit antenna system is a single-axis solution that has improved surface accuracy. The inclined orbit series of antennas allows prime programming to be transmitted and received on an inclined satellite.
The new 1.2m backpack flyaway system is an airline-checkable Ka-band antenna that sets up in 10 minutes. With six-piece, dual-skin metal reflector and sturdy boom for accommodating various BUCs, this antenna is available in swappable X-band, Ka-band and Ku-band configurations.
