The electrical performance and versatility allows the ability to
configure the antenna with a variety of transmit and receive feed
assemblies. This versatility provides the ability to configure the
antenna with multiple linearly or circularly polarized C-band, X-band,
X-band Low Passive Intermodulation (PIM), Ku-band, K-band, and
Ka-band feed systems. Each feed system has been designed to be
easily removable for transport.
•
,
The antenna system design consists of a spun aluminum reflector,
a removable subreflector, heavy duty elevation over azimuth
Positioner, and an optional heavy duty Trailer for transport.

Positioner Configurations
Three positioners are available for Trifold antennas.
• SPP, standard positioner uses a single azimuth motor with chain driven
wheel and dual jack for the elevation. This positioner is only designed for
positioning the antenna.
• LPP, low profile positioner uses an anti-backlash dual azimuth drive
coupled to a chain driven wheel as well as a dual jack for the elevation.
This positioner provides an accurate azimuth and elevation pointing for
positioning, tracking and auto acquisition.
• RPP, this positioner is similar to the LPP version but includes a sealed
bearing precision azimuth system to improve positioning and tracking
accuracy for applications up to Ka band.
Both the LPP and RPP positioner with their low profile design provide the
capability to the Trifold antenna system to be air transportable in C-141,
C-17, C-5, C-130 when using ASC Signal trailers.
