The CPI SAT 4.6-meter mobile antenna is designed for worldwide transmit and receive operation in frequencies from C to Ka-band. This portable antenna consists of a precision dual-skin monocoque reflector with aluminum feed support and base mount. This results in a low-weight antenna with superior stiffness and high performance under wind loading conditions. The unique shape and the accurate reflector surface provide superior sidelobe performance. Repeatability is maintained with precision registration of the three reflector segments and the feed/subreflector support structure. The interchangeable feeds are palletized for quick, easy removal and replacement, allowing the end-user to effectively change frequency bands in the field within minutes. The antenna system utilizes folding side “wings” to achieve a compact stow configuration that is road and air-transportable. The complete 4.6-meter antenna system is designed for rapid deployment and convenient towing when trailer-mounted.
