A wide range of state-of-the-art horn-based and splash plate feed systems are available for prime focus and single and dual-offset antennas covering all the key satellite communication bands, including C, SHF, Ku, DBS and Ka-band frequencies. Linear and circular polarisation feed chains are included, in two, three and four-port configurations.
The Satcom Product Catalogue includes part numbers and configurations for all standard feed chain and reflector antenna systems and also gives a flavour of the vast range of custom configurations and projects that can be undertaken on request.
Cobham uses its feed chains in its DIAMOND range of class-leading, high performance, multi-frequency reflector antennas. These high quality, carbon fibre, antennas are available in solid or segmented formats in sizes of 1m, 1.2m and 1.5m. A range of reflector accessories, services and options are also available.
Two high efficiency X-band flat plate array products are also available, one designed for portable satcom terminals and another for Satcom-On-The-Move (SOTM) applications. Both antennas achieve overall aperture efficiencies of up to 60%, matching equivalent front-fed reflector systems. A family of Ka-band flat panel products is also being developed.
Cobham’s on-site antenna test range facilities, which are accredited by some of the world’s largest satellite operators and available for third-party testing, are described in detail in the catalogue.
