PICO240

240 cm X, Ku and Ka-band terminal

PICO240

SATCOM terminal is designed as robust X, Ku and Ka-band flyaway. The system includes Antenna system with PICO feeds, RAPU assisted pointing module, control unit and casing. The RAPU (ReQuTech Assisted Pointing Unit) includes sensors (GPS, Inclinometer, beacon receiver, heat control) with Ethernet or WLAN connection to PC for quick pointing and satellite acquisition.

The antenna RF system is provided with feed chain filters, polarizer and related microwave parts. The system is compliant with ITU-R S.465 and EUTELSAT ESOG120 standard.
