Tracking Antenna and Transceiver

Transmit and Receive in Up to Four Frequency Bands - UHF to Ku

The AX3000 is a high-gain directional antenna and transceiver system capable of automatic calibration, acquisition and tracking. Designed primarily to link aircraft with ground nodes, AX3000 antennas represent a state of the art in size, weight and gain for long-range LoS links.

Radio agnostic, the AX3000 relies on Troll’s patented RF acquisition and tracking software, accurate pan/tilt mechanisms and embedded positioning sensors to ensure pointing accuracy. Its solid-state INS and dual-GPS auto-aligns position and orientation in three dimensions without operator input.

Fully weatherized radome suitable for demanding environments including marine and coastal installations. Power and data is provided by a single cable for AC/DC power, serial, Ethernet video and data.

AX3000 Marine Tracking Antenna and Multi-Band Transceiver

for Manned, Unmanned Aircraft and Surface Vehicles - UHF to Ku

80% of the world’s population lives within 100 km of a coastline. Manned and unmanned aircraft are routinely called upon for search and rescue, intelligence gathering, coastal sovereignty and homeland security.

Ideally suited to connect aircraft surveillance from naval platforms, the AX3000 automatically tracks high bitrate video and data links even when satellite position, navigation and timing data / GPS is unavailable.

Precision radio tracking, dependable operation and dynamically balanced systems ensure accuracy and control in demanding marine domains.

Operating in these environments require mitigating the effects of temperature, humidity, pressure and salt/fog. In particular, these systems require corrosive resistant materials and environmentally sealed enclosures. On land or sea AX3000 tracking antenna are equipped with high-proficiency mechanical systems and automated software to maintain continuous operation, reliable positioning, navigation, and timing even in GPS denied environments.

Troll’s ground antennas maximize data link range and reliability. They provide automatic acquisition and tracking in multiple frequencies from UHF to Ku.

Radio solutions include Troll’s MicroLink® SDR or customer specified radios: CDLs or MIMO. An intelligent antenna, MiniGS is capable of simultaneously tracking multiple constellations while continuously solving for heading to within ±0.15°.

The GS is equipped with an edge-computing processor that allows users to directly control the antenna, eliminating the need for Troll’s PCC remote control application. With its powerful onboard computer, the Mini GS enables Troll’s auto-tracking software and third-party applications to deliver high-capacity, long-range transmission with low latency. It also boasts improved reliability, stability, and interoperability with customer-supplied transceivers, making it highly effective even in harsh conditions and contested operational areas. During US Army field tests, the Mini GS outperformed its competitors and gained industry-wide recognition for its advanced GPS-denied tracking technologies. Powered by Cyclops, it effortlessly establishes and defends high-bit-rate data links over long distances and in challenging radio environments.
