The General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies (formerly VertexRSI) Model 1259 2.4m QD Quick Deploy Antennas are designed for
worldwide transmit and receive operation in C, X, Ku and Ka-Band. These portable antennas consist of Precision Compression Molded
reflectors and a compact aluminum pedestal. This results in a durable antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under
wind loading conditions.
The unique shape and the accurate reflector surface provide good sidelobe and cross-polarization performance. The antenna
system is a Series 1259 and the reflector consists of a four-segment SMC compression molded assembly. Repeatability is
maintained with precision registration of the reflector segments and the feed support structure.
The 2.4-meter antenna,
including the feed, is packaged in three portable cases.
