1256 Novus Class Antenna

1.2 Meter Motorized Vehicle-Mount Antenna

The Sat-Lite Technologies Model 1256 vehicle-mount antenna is a high performance design for VSAT or SNG applications in a compact design. Key features include a low stow height configuration and compact pedestal minimizing vehicle constraints. Also included is an integrated auto-locate controller with manual override. The integrated control system includes an option for a programmable digital video receiver that can be used to positively identify the satellite and automatically peak the antenna.

The antenna features a precision tooled long focal length composite reflector designed to provide exceptional performance in a lightweight package. Up to 30 lbs of payload can be mounted on the feedboom for multiple integration packages and options. Options exist for heavier payloads as well. The antenna is designed to meet Ku Band RF performance specifications for Intelsat, Eutelsat, and FCC requirements (using the proper feed).

Cirrus Antenna Controller

For Vehicle Mount Antennas

The Sat-Lite Technologies Cirrus Antenna Controller is designed to automatically locate and peak on a target satellite with the simple push of a button in about 3 to 5 minutes. A user friendly interface is provided with a keypad and LCD Display as well as an enhanced ethernet GUI. The Cirrus Controller can operate independently of modems by locking on to a number of DVBS-2 carriers to positively identify a satellite, peak on it to obtain optimal azimuth heading, then move to a final target satellite. The DVB carriers can be easily programmed from the GUI and set optimally by the user for fast and efficient acquisitions. The unit includes a GPS and Compass and can provide GPS data to an external modem. The controller is designed to operate with a full array of Sat-Lite Technologies Vehicle Mount Antennas from 1.0 meter to 1.8 meter applications.
