ASC Signal will provide a new 9.4-meter Ku-band antenna system with full environmental controls and Next Generation Controller, which provides a single, central device to control and operate multiple antenna systems, to enhance the antenna’s operation. The NGC will also feature a built-in spectrum analyzer for a reduced footprint. ASC will also upgrade Globecomm’s exisiting 5.6-meter ASC antenna.
