FlyAway Antenna


 Era – Cobham 12Kus model
1.2 m across-flats four-piece segmented carbon-fiber and aluminum sandwiched "Diamond" shaped reflector with feedboom and feed.

Optics & Feed  Offset, Prime focus, 2-port linear  
Positioner & Drive mechanics
  • Azimuth travel ±30° fine, 360 coarse
  • Elevation travel 5-85° fine
  • Low-profile heavy-duty aircraft aluminum tripod
  • Dry bushings leg stowing & self securing mechanism
  • Dry slide bearing azimuth turn-table and elevation mechanisms
  • Stainless steel trapezoidal screw manual actuators for azimuth and elevation
  • Stainless steel ball-bearing leveling feet
  • Manual rotation of the feed, ±90° fine
