ND SatCom SKYRAY Compact 1500 Plus 1.5m Antenna

Summary

 

The SKYRAY family with more than 300 sold systems world-wide is the most robust product in the market. All moving parts are completely sealed against dust, humidity and icing. It is transmitting for customers in very cold snowy regions as well as in very hot desert areas.

The SKYRAY Compact plus 1500 antenna system can be easily can be easily mounted at standard railings of vehicles via its 6 mounting legs. It is designed for EBU transmission with a redundant RF chain for up to 2 x 400W HPAs This antenna system is best of breed regarding lifetime, wind load and pointing accuracy. The automatic pointing process is supported by high resolution resolvers and measurement of the receive signal. The amplifiers are mounted into the feed arm in order to shorten the waveguide length and to minimize the signal loss.
