1.8 Meter Quick Deploy Antenna

1188 RD, 1189 QD

The General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies lightweight 1.8-meter (71-inch) Rugged Deploy antennas are designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, X, Ku and Ka-band. These portable antennas consist of Precision Compression Molded reflectors and galvanized steel tripod base mounts. This results in a durable, corrosion resistant antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions.

 

Features

The unique shape and the accurate reflector surface provide good sidelobe and cross-polarization performance. The antenna system includes options consisting of a two-segment or four-segment SMC compression molded reflector assembly. Repeatability is maintained with precision registration of the reflector segment(s) and the feed support structure. The complete 1.8-meter antenna system, including a single feed, is packaged in a reusable wooden crate.
