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.

High gain directional antennas

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 S 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.
