London – Luso Microwave, an operating division of Luso Electronics that manufactures and installs microwave systems and components for commercial and military satellite markets, has announced a new family of modular C–band to KA-band antennas in a range of reflector sizes from 1.2m to 4.2m. The modular design reduces installation time, cut costs and adds flexibility to microwave satellite networks, including making KA band installations financially viable for cost-sensitive commercial applications.
KA band usage is growing due to problems with spectrum overload in other bands. Furthermore, a 1.8 metre diameter KA band dish offers comparable performance to a 4.2 meter KU band antenna. The much smaller antennas and waveguides simplify transportation, handling and installation.
Luso will deliver the antennas from stock. Installation and commissioning of a 5-piece motorized system is typically completed in one day, about one-third of normal installation time for comparable antennas. Customers can opt for a fixed installation in the first instance then upgrade easily to a full tracking one at a later date. The modular design also simplifies other changes that may be needed during the life of the installation.
The antennas are supplied in four variants: fixed, manually adjustable, motorized and full tracking. A range of ancillary components is also available.
The company’s one-stop service includes system preplanning and design, site preparation, installation, testing and maintenance.
The new antennas will be shown for the first time at IBC 2014, Hall 5, Stand C-19, 12th – 16th September at the RAI Amsterdam.
