The RM150 has been designed with excellent attention to mechanical detail and high performing materials selection. The RM series of antennas will provide many years of continuous service in the harshest of applications and is the choice for many tier 1 national broadcasters worldwide.
The RM150 antenna is an ultra-compact roof mount system which encompasses the drive control, positioning hardware and BUC/HPA into the aerodynamic antenna enclosure, making the system a robust standalone subassembly ready to install onto almost any vehicle.
The versatile power-payload of the RM antenna series has been designed to take low power SSPAs or high power TWTs in a single thread, or 1:1 redundant configurations with power levels up to 400W.
The main reflector is manufactured from high quality carbon fibre. The Satellite Acquisition Controller uses industry standard position transducers and a sophisticated pattern recognition algorithm, to confirm and refine its heading information using visible satellites. The controller is mounted on the antenna structure with a separate power supply and control panel, in a rack mount unit for mounting within the equipment area.
The system is simple to install, set up and use. Following relocation of the antenna, the system will reliably and accurately locate and lock on to the designated traffic satellite, typically in less than 3 minutes from stowed.
