Summary

AvL 1215 1.2m Manual or Motorized FlyAway Military Lightweight Compact Portable Antenna Standard 2-Port Ka-Band

AvL’s 1.2m Manual FlyAway Antenna System weighs 62 lbs assembled with a Ku-band feed, and is compact enough to fit into two ballistic nylon cases. The robust carbon fiber reflector and tripod base are rugged enough for operations in harsh conditions. The antenna’s tripod base can be anchored to increase wind resistance, and the antenna assembles in 5 minutes. 

AvL’s Manual FlyAway Antennas are lightweight, compact, portable, and robust with carbon fiber reflectors and easy-to-assemble tripods. AvL’s Az/El positioners feature easy pointing as well as fine-tuning, and are easy and quick to assemble. As with all AvL antenna systems, the Manual FlyAway Antennas interface with any modem, RF electronics, or satellite service, and achieve pointing accuracy and pointing stability even in the most extreme conditions. 

AvL 1215 Ka-Band Manual or Motorized FlyAway Military Antenna feature:
• 1.2m, 4 piece Carbon Fiber Reflector
• Lightweight, compact and portable in two small cases
• Fast interchangeable feed system with tri-band capability: Ku, Ka and X; DBS capable
• Assembles in less than 5 minutes
• Feed rotation for polarization
• Easy pointing and fine-tuning Az/El positioner
• Manual actuators enable full range of motion
• Tripod legs can be anchored to increase wind resistance
• Single- or multi-band options for worldwide operation
• Prime focus offset optics with global mode-matched feed
• Manual actuators enable full range of motion
• Quick set-up operational in minutes
• Interface with all types of RF electronics and services
• Numerous packaging options including backpacks and rugged cases

While the vast majority of military applications to date have relied on commercial satellite interoperability, especially at Ku-band, AvL is now leading the industry in the delivery of systems that will operate over the next generation of military satellites, including Xtar (X-band) and the new US Army Wideband Global Satellite (WGS) constellation (X- and Ka-band). Most of our military antennas can be offered with upgradability to X- and Ka-bands of operation.

AvL antennas interface easily with all RF systems and are compliant with FCC and Intelsat requirements for 2° spacing as well as optional models for meeting Eutelsat and Asiasat criteria. AvL antennas are also in the certification process for operation over the US Army DSCS and WGS satellites.
