PD300, Portable Pedestal, with 4 foot reflector payload.

Modular Pedestals

The PD Series antenna pedestal series encompasses applications requiring lightweight arrays in portable and mobile applications, up to pedestals with payloads of 6.1 meters (20 feet) in diameter. 

PD300 > 4 ft. (1.2 M) antenna
PD450 > 6 ft. (1.8M) antenna
PD500 > 8 ft. (2.44M) antenna
PD750 > 16 ft. (5M) antenna
PD900 > 20 ft. (6.1M) antenna 

Plano-centric drive assembly. 

Plano-Centric Drives

All TelAntCo pedestals are provided with plano-centric drives (supplied in sealed gearbox housings). Commonly used in robotics, such as pick- and-place machines, plano-centric drives have excellent performance features, superior to those of conventional gear transmissions. 

PD500 Fixed L&S Band Telemetry Tracking System with 8 foot Reflector payload.

Excellent Coverage

TelAntCo’s positioners are slip-ring and rotary joint compatible. Use of these commercial products allows for unlimited azimuth travel, while limited travel is provided in the elevation axis, and can be provide in the azimuth axis. Each axis is supplied with a data pack which provides the ACU with pedestal position data, and with limit switches.

Seen here is one example of many successful installations: three PD500 dual axis 2.44 Meter L and S band Conscan tracker used to track rockets at NASA's launch facility at Kennedy Space Center.  

The systems allow for simultaneous tracking reception and transmission to the launch payloads with user selectable polarization. 

The antennas are provided with high quality video cameras, with the antenna pedestals being controlled over a fiber optic link.

The effort included onsite installation of the systems in accordance with an approved safety plan and lift plan per NASA's specified requirements.
