Troll Systems successfully demonstrated fully automated, Quad-Band Tactical Tracking Antenna
Every year the US Army organises exercises to demonstrate solutions and develop plans to support multinational NATO operations. At a recent event, Troll Systems demonstrated the MT-300 a bidirectional, quad-band tracking antenna and Ground Control System (GCS) with (cursor on target) and two-way chat. Designed to provide long-range, video data links that automatically locate and lock on fast-moving aircraft MT antennas have been proven to maintain high-bit-rate links to as much as 315 km when paired with Troll’s airborne tracking antennas.
MT300 Quad-Band is easy to operate, automatically locating RF signals and tracking them effortlessly. A built-in dual GPS, INS aligns the antenna to within 0.5 degrees automatically. No magnetic or timely setup is required. All this leads to a system that is extremely accurate and provides exceptional long-range performance over 100 nm LOS (Line Of Sight).
Combined with customer-supplied modems the MT300 Quad-Band supports two bands simultaneously, in L, S, C (C1, C2), and Ku (upper Ku, and lower). An optional fifth UHF band and third-party communications radios can be added. MT300 Quad-Band supports automatic telemetry tracking in L, S, C, and Ku bands. The antenna also features a heavy-duty, continuous rotating pedestal, universal power 100 VAC to 240 VAC, Ethernet control interface with an integrated four-port managed switch, rear-panel touch screen controller and customised PC software to control the entire system.
Troll Systems is exhibiting at booth #1537.
