AvL's 60cm Manual FlyAway Antenna at Eutelsat
January 5, 2015
AvL's 60cm Manual FlyAway antenna is our latest antenna to receive Eutelsat type-approval for operation on KA-SAT. This lightweight and compact antenna has a robust 8-piece carbon fibre reflector and a manually-pointed positioner with fine tuning for Az and El. The antenna can be assembled and operational in less than 5 minutes, packs into a small airline carry-on compliant backpack, and weighs less than 16 kg when packed.
This compact grab-and-go antenna received approval using a Ka-band TRIA feed and Eutelsat’s Tooway modem. The antenna received approval with manual pointing, but has optional motorization. Other options include interchangeable X- and Ku-band feeds in addition to Ka-band (LP and CP) feeds.
