Flyaway Antennas

MIL-STD-810 and WGS/DSCS approved antennas and systems.

The GigaSat FA-series of flyaway antennas are specifically designed to survive the tough environment of Satellite News Gathering, but their highly innovative packaging with robust, lightweight carbon fibre, construction has made them the preferred antenna for a whole variety of other applications. Today FA-series antennas are in service around the World for reliable transmission of sporting events, emergency data restoration and military/government communications.

GigaSat's flyaway antennas are available in a comprehensive range of diameters including 1.0m (FA-100), 1.2m (FA-120), 1.8m (FA-180), 2.4m (FA-240) and 3.7m (FA-370) and the innovative cartridge feed arrangement allows them all to be quickly configured for operation in C, X, Ku, DBS and Ka frequency bands.

Full motion three axis motorisation combined with the GigaSat STC-100 antenna controller allows FA-series antennas to automatically acquire satellites, minutes after deployment, and an integral tracking receiver will keep the signal peaked even on inclined orbit satellites. This sophisticated automatic satellite acquisition and tracking system has WGS/DSCS approval.

The smallest antennas in the range, FA-100 and FA-120 weigh only 24.8 and 29.4kgs respectively. This comfortably meets latest airline health and safety requirements for checked baggage to weigh less than 32kgs and these antennas can break down further into three highly compact cases for transportation, each weighing less than 10kg.

Even the mighty FA-370 antenna, the largest in the range, packs into only five easily manageable flight cases and can be deployed, without any tools, by two people in less than 30 minutes.

If you need an antenna which is convenient to transport, easy to deploy and rugged enough for guaranteed compliance to all satellite authority specifications every time it is used, GigaSat has an antenna which will meet your requirements.
