Patented VICTS Technology
What Sets Us Apart
Electronic or Mechanical?
The Best of Both.
Our patented “VICTS” phased-array technology combines the technical benefits of mechanically steered and electronically scanned arrays (MSAs/ESAs) to deliver consistently high performance in the harshest environments. To the fastest-moving aircraft, vehicles and vessels – no matter their location on or above the planet – our unique phased arrays deliver:
- Gap-free, pole-to-pole coverage
- Satellite constellation interoperability
- High beam agility for network flexibility
- Installation versatility with low-profile design
- Reduced OpEx from ultra-efficient operation

VICTS Spelled Out
VICTS stands for “variable inclination continuous transverse stub.”
In very simple terms, the technology is comprised of layers of lightweight discs rotating around a single axis to steer the beam and control polarization.
Similar to electronically scanned arrays, the beam moves but you don’t see any moving parts on the antenna.
