The ASC Signal Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) is now shipping 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 the 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.
CPI ASC Signal Division’s 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 industry’s highest level of acquisition, tracking accuracy and performance from antenna systems of this size.
CPI ASC Signal Division 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. CPI ASC Signal Division’s 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.
“Our new Nomadic Antenna product is an evolution in state-of-the-art antenna design that addresses our customers’ critical needs,” said CPI ASC Signal Division president Keith Buckley. “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 our approach is that we 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.”
