Low Profile

Because of the inherent low profile and streamlined radome, these are the lowest drag phased arrays on the market

Target orange icon
Target Red Icon

Brushless DC Motors

The high-torque brushless DC motors increase reliability with no contacting parts and allow for rapid satellite switching

Target orange icon
Target Red Icon

Passive RF Layers

Three layers which make up the antenna are entirely passive, increasing efficiency and reducing prime power
