GD Satcom 950 Antenna Control System


The GD Satcom 950 Antenna Control System comprises of an Antenna Control Unit (ACU), Tracking Receiver Unit (TRU) and a Power Drive Unit (PDU) which are linked via dedicated Ethernet connections. This provides flexibility in locating the key system components, allows for variable separation distances and provides immunity to electrical ground plane transients.

 

GD Satcom 950 Tracking Accuracy - Optrack

The GD Satcom 950 Antenna Control System is nomally better than 5% of the receive beamwidth in winds of 30 mph gusting to 45 mph, satellite inclination of up to 15º and signal scintillation of up to 2 dB.

 

GD Satcom 950 Pointing Accuracy

The GD Satcom 950 Antenna Control System is normally better than 0.05º RMS in winds of 30 mph gusting to 45 mph. This includes all drive train errors, but excludes structural errors between the position transducers and RF beam.

 

GD Satcom 950 Antenna Control Unit

The GD Satcom 950 Antenna Control Unit (ACU) is the primary control and monitor interface point for the entire system, featuring a friendly touch screen windowed interface.
