AvL customer Squire Tech Solutions was interviewed recently by News 4 San Antonio recently during a demo at the Border Security Expo. Many thanks to Michael Zalle and Squire Tech for a great demo of the pCom XL and an AvL antenna!
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

AvL Technologies is proud to support our service men and women with SATCOM antennas that enable them to communicate from limitless locations and in virtually any environment. So we were thrilled to spot an AvL antenna in this new commercial for the U.S. Army Reserve.
Many thanks to Col. Brad Walker for visiting AvL Technologies! Col. Walker is the Commander of the Rapid Reaction Branch (RRB) of USAF Space & Missile Command, and he presented AvL with a plaque in recognition of the company's support for RRB. AvL appreciates the recognition from the RRB and is thrilled to be viewed as a valued business partner!!
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.
Thank you to Rodcast Telecom Inc. for sharing these great photos with us! Rodcast is an AvL and Teledynes/Paradise representative. Chilefilms is using this truck with an AvL 2.4m antenna to broadcast live from @copaamerica2015.
