The GD Satcom (formerly VertexRSI) C240M Lightweight 2.4-meter Mobile Antenna is designed for
worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, X, Ku and Ka-Band. This mobile antenna consists of a carbon fiber composite reflector
and back beam mounted on a cable-driven, elevation-over-azimuth positioning system. This results in an antenna with superior stiffness
and high performance under wind loading conditions.
The unique shape and the accurate reflector surface provide exceptionally low sidelobe and cross-polarization performance well within
INTELSAT and EUTELSAT requirements. The interchangeable feeds are palletized for quick, easy removal and replacement, allowing the end-user
to effectively change frequency bands in the field within minutes.
