Chilcott, Inc., Training at AvL

April 17, 2017

It was great to have Chilcott, Inc. at AvL Technologies last week for training!! Chilcott’s Billy Rodriguez and Jaime Castaneda along with AVL’s David Madrid, conducted a week long Advanced Satellite Systems Course for a cadre of nine (9) international military students from Peru, Uruguay and Chile. Training was conducted at the AVL Technologies facility in Asheville, North Carolina. This is a continuation of support for U.S. Southern Command’s Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) program. These individuals are scheduled to deploy to Africa in the near future in support of UN Peacekeeping Missions. This intense training will prove invaluable while operating in remote areas under austere conditions. https://www.linkedin.com/hp/update/6258663103794335744

New DSNG Upgrade by Applied Electronics Limited

February 17, 2016
Thanks to Dave McGinn of Applied Electronics Limited for the photo of this great new truck for Global Edmonton! According to Dave...
Here is our completed DSNG upgrade project for the CITV/Global News Sprinter in Edmonton, Alberta.
The pics show the 1.8m AVL antenna with hub-mounted Advantech 250w KU band solid state power amplifier/block upconverter. (Notably, Advantech is a Montréal company) This state of the art uplink includes the AVL auto-acquire system. Digital encoding is through an Ericsson AVP3000. RF routing is handled via a Frontline Communications custom RF control and patch panel. The RF system was designed by Frontline systems engineering manager Jeff Steele.
The system was installed and commissioned by AEL subcontractor SureLink Communications. Its principal, Jeff Heard (right) is a former Frontline engineer. He is shown with Gerald Cherepuschak, project manager for CITV. The Sprinter was built “DSNG-ready” by Frontline and delivered by Applied Electronics in the summer of 2010. The advance build provides for the antenna mounting plate on the roof rack, additional power circuits and the antenna deployed alarm. That facilitated the all facets of the DSNG upgrade being done at the CITV facility in Edmonton.
