The GD Satcom(formerly VertexRSI) Lightweight 2.4-
meter Flyaway Antenna is designed for worldwide transmit
and receive operation in C, X and Ku-band. This portable
antenna consists of a carbon fiber composite reflector and
aluminum support structures. This results in a low-weight
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. Repeatability is maintained with precision
registration of the nine reflector segments and the feed
support structure. The complete antenna system, including a
single feed, is packaged in nine robust portable cases.
