SWE-DISH® DA150K Mil Drive-Away Antenna System
Производитель: DataPath Inc. (SWE-DISH)
The SWE-DISH® DA150K Mil Drive-Away from Rockwell Collins is 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 DA150K 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.

High perfomance in rugged environments.
The Rockwell Collins SWE-DISH DA150Kb Mil Drive-Away is a combat proven, vehicle mounted, encapsulated antenna system, suitable for rough and quick to air government applications, and can serve situations. It is designed for military and a highly mobile command post, a hub for theatre broadcast or be mounted on an incident response vehicle. The antenna deploys automatically, and is set up for transmission from inside the vehicle. The DA150K Mil Drive-Away is capable of both high and low power Ku-band transmission of data, voice and video. Auto pointing, and automatic satellite acquisition using a GPS and an electronic compass provide for easy operation.
The roof pod equipment integration capability is unsurpassed - anything from a 16 W transceiver to a high power configuration with phase combined 400 W TWTA’s plus an integrated Aircon, beaming up to 72 dBW EIRP. Integration is easy with only one set of cables needed from the outside pod to the inside electronic rack. Noise and heat inside the vehicle are reduced by housing power amplifiers and RF equipment inside the pod. A low profile when stowed makes the antenna less conspicuous and reduces drag during transport.
High perfomance antenna
The high performing elliptical 1.5 m (59 in) Gregorian offset antenna is the heart of the DA150K Mil Drive-Away. The dual optics and accurate carbon composite reflector surface give exceptionally low side lobes and good cross-polar performance. The antenna mount is on a large diameter turntable, making it backlash free in both elevation and azimuth.
Auto pointing makes the DA150K Mil Drave-Away easy to operate and quick to air in the fieid. Inbuilt GPS, electronic compass and inclinometer, together with the Easy Control & Monitoring (ECM025) unit, allow the antenna to automatically acquire a selected satellite. If the same satellite and polarization are used, operation is reduced to pressing two buttons - Deploy and Stow - the rest is automatic. The operator needs a minimum of training to operate the system.
The combat proven DA 150 K Mil Drive-Away is designed, manufactured and tested for compliance with military specifications. The pod encapsulates the antenna, antenna mechanism including feed arm and RF components, to reduce wear and tear from brushes or dust during transportation. At the same time all parts are easily accessible for repair. Extra care has been taken to make all mechanics resistant to sand, dust, and grit. The DA150K Mil Drive-Away has successfully performed in combat operations.
