Summary

AvL 2020FA 2.0m SNG Motorized Quad-Band FlyAway Antenna 2-port C-Band INSAT

AvL's Model 2.0m 2020FA FlyAway SNG antenna system offers standard wind performance in a lightweight and portable package. All 2020FA FlyAway SNG antenna systems have positioners integrated into cases for easy set-up; these antennas can be flown anywhere, then set up and operational within minutes.  These antenna systems are produced in high volume for a significant U.S. Army program.

AvL’s FlyAway SNG antennas are designed to meet and exceed the highest performance requirements around the world to guarantee both satellite authority compliance and peak in performance, reliability and availability.

Each Flyaway Antenna is priced to include the AvL carbon fiber antenna and auto-acquisition controller for ease of operation. As with all AvL antenna systems, no laptop is necessary to operate the controller, the antennas interface with any modem, RF electronics, or satellite service.

AvL 2020FA C-Band 2.0m SNG Systems feature:
• Packs into three or four cases depending on options selected; positioner is integrated into one 
• 2.0m Segmented 9-piece Carbon Fiber Reflector
