Wave Relay® Auto-Tracking Antenna System

Auto-Tracking Antenna System

Design

Persistent System’s designed the Auto-Tracking Antenna System for precision, simplicity, and real-world performance.
 
From the system’s simple carrying cases to its modular feed design, the Auto-Tracking Antenna System delivers the distance and throughput for the mission.

Tight Tolerance Engineering

Extremely accurate pointing requires close attention to tolerances of every component in the system.

A laser-based optical inspection system measures each dish to ensure that the parabola is within specification.

Careful engineering ensures that users achieve the greatest possible range and performance.

Easy Hand Assembly

The assembly of the 5 ft. a parabolic dish is both fast and precise.

Keyed petals ensure perfect alignment, hand-tight fasteners enables a single person to assemble the dish in under five minutes.

The fasteners are spring loaded and captive to each petal, ensuring quick assembly and no lost hardware.

The dish also disassembles into eight petals for easy transport and compact storage.

Modular Antenna Feed

The Auto-Tracking Antenna System includes a set of L-Band, S-Band, and C-Band interchangeable MIMO feeds.

These (3) feeds cover all the frequency bands over which Persistent’s (5) Radio Modules operate, allowing the tracking antenna to operate on any existing MPU5 frequency band, therefore supporting the Interchangeable Frequency Architecture.

The feeds twist-lock into place for quick and simple horizontal/vertical polarisation or slant left / right polarisation to match the antenna configuration on the air platform.

Designed To Withstand The Elements

Harsh winds. Torrential downpours. Frigid temperatures. Blinding snow.

The Auto-Tracking Antenna System is designed to withstand the harshest of elements while still providing optimal connectivity when it matters most.

The parabolic dish and supporting hardware are hard anodised to withstand the elements.

The perforated petals reduce the wind-load of the system. The petals have a welded aluminium frame to provide rigidity, while minimising weight.
