2.5-Meter High Wind Transportable Antenna from L to Q-Bands

The ASC Signal Division of Communications & Power Industries (CPI), has introduced a new high-wind version of its popular 2.5-meter Nomadic Antenna. The trailer mountable, carbon-fiber antenna is being sold to organizations for use in remote field deployment applications for defense and commercial industry customers.

CPI ASC Signal Division developed a durable technology for its new version of the Nomadic Antenna to address industry and customer requirements that the company has seen evolve through several programs. This latest Nomadic Antenna product is capable of operation at L, X, C, Ku, Ka, Q and V-bands and is the latest addition to the company’s expanded mobile product line. In its latest configuration, the Nomadic Antenna system serves as the platform for an ARSTRAT-certified terminal and, to date, more than 100 systems are in service worldwide.

Additionally, the 2.5-meter system combines the company’s innovative antenna design with its state of the art Next Generation Controller (NGC) to provide the highest level of acquisition, tracking accuracy and performance from antenna systems of this size.

CPI continues to expand its portfolio of mobile and transportable antenna systems, based on the company’s existing line of high-performance fixed earth station antennas. Their product offering now includes mobile and transportable antenna systems that reach from 2.4 through 4.6 meters, along with fixed antenna systems that reach through 9.4 meters. The company’s antenna products are designed for service to all commercial and non-commercial/military satellite bands.

As mobility continues to be a prominent and dominant requirement for remote applications, CPI ASC Signal Division continues to deliver earth station antennas that seamlessly integrate fixed and mobile systems into the same network architecture. What is unique about their approach is that they are able to utilize the same antenna controller systems, regardless of the antenna platform, thereby reducing costs to customers and providing uniform operation across the entire network.

This nomadic antenna is electronically engineered to operate at multiple frequencies, ASC Signal’s 2.4/2.5 meter Nomadic is capable of transmitting and receiving signals under demanding wind loads and surviving winds up to 100 mph. Weighing less than 220 kg (480 lb), in fully motorized versions (including feeds), the tactical version can be deployed by two trained individuals within 30 minutes.
