AX3000 Aperture Efficient Offset Tracking Antenna
Multi-Band Frequencies from UHF to Ku
Designed to be a self-contained tracking and transceiver system, the AX3000 represents an evolution of Troll’s compact, weatherized directional tracking antennas. It incorporates a high-performance multi-sensor inertial navigation system with dual-GPS to automatically locate and track targeted RF signal sources effortlessly.
Without operator input the AX3000 auto-aligns the antenna’s boresight with sub-degree precision. Systems provide auto-acquisition and tracking even onboard constantly moving platforms. Troll’s highly-accurate pan and tilt mechanisms feature continuous 360° azimuth and +85° to -15° elevation positioning to provide exception coverage. To ensure pointing accuracy the antenna incorporates the latest solid-state INS sensor technology. Comprised of three-axis accelerometers, gyros, magnetometers, a barometric pressure sensor, dual GNSS receivers, a high-speed micro-processor and dual-GPS the AX3000 automatically determines its location and orientation in three dimensions.
Power and data for the AX3000 are provided over a single cable allowing for AC or DC power sources with serial or Ethernet data connectivity. The AX3000 utilizes Troll’s patented RF tracking processes and are radio agnostic – allowing for fully-duplexed, multi-band operation at frequencies from UHF to Ku-Band. Support is provided for a variety of radio waveforms including CDL, FDD, DVB-T COFDM, OFDM, and MIMO. Radio solutions can embedded or remotely connected via RF cable lengths up to 30 meters.
The antenna is configured with a weatherized radome suitable for extremely demanding environments including: mobile ground, coastal and marine installations. Systems operate from AC/DC power inputs from: 22-32VDC or 80-240VAC. Environmental performance is assured through rigorous, testing for shock, vibration, dust, rain, temperature, pressure, humidity with EMI/EMC validation.
