Driveaway (Vehicle Mount) Antennas

GigaSat driveaway antenna are available in two different versions:

DA series - featuring an integral carbon fibre monocoque cowl provinding full environmental protection.

The DA series are available in a comprehensive range of sizes including 1.0m (DA-100), 1.5m (DA-150), 1.8m (DA-180) and 2.4m (DA-240) and our innovative cartridge feed arrangement allows them all to be quickly configured for operation in C, X, Ku, DBS and Ka frequency bands.

DA series antennas are designed with minimum weight and ultra low profile thus providing a minimum drag coefficient. This makes them simple to install with little or no specialist coach building on most vehicles and avoids upsetting the original driving characteristics.

An integrated equipment pod, which fully encloses the antenna when stowed, provides a secure mounting position for amplifiers and upconverters. This creates extra space and reduces noise and heat inside the vehicle whilst minimising losses between the HPA and the antenna interface.

Every DA series antenna is offered with full three axis motorisation and when combined with the STC-100 antenna controller this can allow fully automatic pointing, acquisition, peaking and tracking on geostationary satellites.

DA Lite series - 1.8m or 2.0m diameter antennas

The DA Lite series are a very cost effective lightweight antenna suitable for mounting on virtually any vehicle.

The load supporting feed arm design can carry a pair of low power BUCs or a cradle can be supplied to carry a pair of high power amplifiers.

Just like the DA series the DA Lite series is equipped with full three axis motorisation with all of the same features.
