2.4m Ultra Lightweight Manual FlyAway Military Antenna

2.4m Ultra Lightweight Manual FlyAway Military Antenna

AvL’s new 2.4m axi-symmetric antenna is ultra-lightweight and has a small two-case pack-up. The 14-piece carbon fiber reflector is designed to operate in X, Ku and Ka-band with new bayonet-style feeds and quick-change RF kits. A C-band capability is in the planning as an upgrade kit. The antenna is modular and flexible with numerous BUC and LNB options, and it supports RF or modem peaking. This manual operation antenna functions on an aluminum space frame, which enables set-up or pack-up by one person in minutes. Once the antenna is set-up and anchored, the antenna is easily repositioned using simple, ergonomic pointing assist features – no anchor adjustments needed – for fine tuning to one satellite or pointing to a different satellite.

Key features:
  • The most compact 2.4m antenna on the market
  • Offers performance specifications comparable to larger lightweight antennas with small pack-up
  • Packs into two checkable transit cases with each weighing less than 100 lbs.
  • High-stiffness, ultra-lightweight 14-piece carbon fiber reflector with a 6-piece hub
  • High-stiffness, ultra-lightweight positioner base
  • Assembles in 5 minutes
