Tracking Antenna Optimized for L and S Bands, Skylink Mini S

The SkyLink Mini S follows on the success of the original SkyLink Mini. With a minimal increase in size, weight and power, the Mini S provides a substantial increase in gain in L band and S bands versus Troll’s Mini II.

The Mini S, provides exceptional long-range performance and like all of Troll's directional antennas relies on multi-axis, continuously steered positioning to maintain signal lock. This auto-tracking feature allows the Mini S to focus all its signal energy into narrow beams, thereby increasing received signal level, and minimizing the possibility of interference that frequently plague omni antennas.

The SkyLink Mini II features improvements that dramatically reduce the cost of installation and operation. The Mini S incorporates INS Mini2 navBoardan inertial navigation system (INS). Its internal INS enables the Mini S to self-calibrate and provide location, position and heading data eliminating the need to install external gyros or magnetometers. The Mini S always knows where it is and does not need GPS data from the aircraft or ground vehicle to establish a link or maintain signal lock.
