SWE-DISH® DA150K HD Drive-Away
Производитель: DataPath Inc. (SWE-DISH)
The SWE-DISH DA150K HD Drive-Away is a unique concept for vehicle mount antenna systems. During transportation, you see an elegant looking car-box on top of an SUV or van. On site, the antenna deploys gracefully and automatically points towards the selected satellite. Within 10 minutes you are on the air, transmitting your Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) contribution back to base. The DA150K HD Drive-Away is your choice for Ku-band high data rate and high power DSNG applications, from anywhere. Lower data rate/power applications are also common; e.g., military satellite communication from remote sites.
Key Features & Benefits
-High EIRP supports simultaneous HD and SD, IP streaming or DVB-S2, contribution channels
-Exceptional antenna performance
-Low drag and non conspicuous – low profile
-No dedicated vehicle needed – no cable feed through roof needed and self-contained pod
-Rugged – all equipment is totally encapsulated during transportation
-Low weight – ideal for all vehicle types; carbon composite construction optimizes weight budget
-Wide choice of configurations: automatic alignment with GPS, step tracking, single thread, redundant, phase combined, integrated aircon system
-High EIRP operation
-FCC compliant, Intelsat/Eutelsat compliant, individual station approval applies
A high performing, easy to use, rugged satellite system.
The Rockwell Collins SWE-DISH DA150K HD Drive-Away is a unique concept for vehicle mount antenna systems. During transportation, you see an elegant looking car-box on top of a SUV or a van. At site, the antenna deploys gracefully, and automatically points towards the selected satellite. Typically within 10 minutes you are on air, transmitting your DSNG contribution back to base. The DA150K Drive-Away is your choice for Ku-band high data rate and high power DSNG applications, from anywhere. Lower data rate/power applications are also common, e.g. military satellite communication from remote sites.
High performing antenna
The high performing elliptical 1.5 m Gregorian offset antenna is of course the heart of the DA150K Drive-Away – the dual optics and accurate carbon fiber reflector surfaces provide exceptional low side lobes and good cross-polar performance. The antenna mount is a large diameter turntable, totally backlash free in both elevation and azimuth.
It has a high power configuration with 750 W TWTA, beaming up to 71.5 dBW EIRP towards the bird. The high EIRP supports a HD MPEG4, IP Streaming or DVB-S2, contribution channel. It also supports an additional and simultaneous SD MPEG2/4 contribution channel. Fitting to the roof is easy thanks to a supporting
frame that distributes the load.
Ease of use
Operation is extremely easy if the GPS/compass option is fitted. Simply get to the site, jacks down, press “Deploy” on the full featured SWE-DISH ACU3000 keyboard, select “Satellite” and press “Locate.” Lean back and watch the antenna peak up on the selected satellite – maybe via the pod-mounted video camera/spotlight. The proven Easy Control & Monitoring (ECM) unit helps the not-so-well-trained operator to configure and set up the system – followed by step-by-step support during line up towards the satellite.
The pod encapsulates the antenna, antenna mechanics, 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 Drive-Away is in use with broadcasters the world over, and has also successfully performed in combat operations.
