SWE-DISH® DA150D Mil Drive-Away Antenna System (DA150D Mil)
Производитель: DataPath Inc. (SWE-DISH)
The SWE-DISH® DA150D Mil Drive-Away from Rockwell Collins is a combat-proven, vehicle-mounted, encapsulated antenna system, suitable for rough and quick-to-air situations. Designed for military and government use, it can serve as a highly mobile command post, a hub for theater broadcast or a mounted antenna system on incident response vehicles.
The DA150D is extremely rugged, fully motorized and capable of both high- and low-power Ku-band transmissions. You can also choose to equip your system with X-band capability.
Short feed arms provide exceptional mechanical robustness. During transport, the system is totally encapsulated in the pod to reduce wear and tear from branches and dust. A low profile makes the antenna less conspicuous.
Key Features & Benefits
-Rapid deployment in and out of action
-Easy and cost-effective integration
-Design delivers high EIRP and G/T
-Encapsulated and rugged
-FCC, Intelsat/Eutelsat, ETSI/CTR 030 approved, CE-marked with military EMC requirements
A rugged design for challenging environments.
The Rockwell Collins SWE-DISH DA150D Mil Drive-Away is a combat proven, vehicle mounted pod antenna system for quick to air situations. It is designed for military and government applications. During transport the antenna is totally encapsulated to protect the equipment, giving a nonconspicuous installation with low profile.
The integration of the pod to the vehicle roof is straight forward and stainless steel welded subframes distribute the weight over the complete roof surface. The installation can be permanent or temporary.
High performing antenna
The high performing elliptical 1.5 m Gregorian offset antenna is the heart of the DA150D Mil Drive-Away - the dual optics and accurate carbon composite reflector surfaces provide exceptional low side lobes and good cross-polar performance. The short feed arm enables high stability and easy packing/stowing into a uniquely compact unit. The antenna mount is a large diameter turntable, totally backlash free in both elevation and azimuth.
The DA150D Mil Drive-Away is for operation on Ku- and X-band and is designed for ease of band change in field. Frequency band reconfiguration with Ku- and X-band replaceable feed system and SSPB waveguide runs with integrated filters and quick release waveguide clamps.
Inside the pod a 100 W SSPA for extended Ku-band or 150 W SSPB for X-band is fitted, which is the standard configuration for DA150D. The maximum HPA integration capability is band specific 2 x 400 W TWTAs, dual single thread or single band 1:1 redundant.
Ease of use
The DA150D Mil Drive-Away is fitted with the full featured ACU3000M antenna control unit and navigational sensor (GPS/compass) as a standard feature. Automatic satellite acquisition, meaning antenna pointing and subsequent satellite identification, is supported by the ACU3000M. If the same satellite and polarization are used frequently, the operation reduces to “two button operation.” When arriving at site, the “Locate” button is pressed; before leaving the “Stow” button is pressed – that’s ease of use.
