Swedish antenna company ReQuTech has unveiled a family of ultra-lightweight, quick-deploy manpack flyaway terminals.
The Pico family comprises the 75cm and 120cm manually pointed terminals and the 75cm auto-point terminal, each featuring segmented carbon fibre antennas.
Each of the manually pointed antennas is supplied as standard with a Tx/Rx Ku band feed (Ka, wide-band Ka and X bands are optionally available), carbon fibre tripod, reflector and feed arm, assisted pointing unit with sensors, Android tablet with pre-loaded Mercury auto-pointing software and a carry case.
The auto-point terminals come complete with Tx/Rx Ku band feed including skew motorisation (Ka, wide-band Ka and X bands are optionally available), carbon fibre tripod, reflector and feed arm, sensor unit with embedded ReQuTech-designed ACU, Android tablet with pre-loaded control software and carry cases. Although the ACU features the OpenAMIP protocol so that it can work with most manufacturers’ modems, the terminal can be optionally supplied with an embedded iDirect iQ200 modem.
Connection to the terminals can be via WiFi or Ethernet cable.
