Overview

The PFA-120 is more compact & lightweight motorized Flyaway Antenna solution ideally suited to the worldwide satellite market. It can be easily transported in IATA weight compliant Carbon-Fiber flight cases.

No tool required for PFA-120 installation due to its modular design and no special training needed for the operator. Only one person can carry lightweight & robust Carbon-Fibre cases and make it ready for broadcasting under 10 minutes. The PFA-120 antenna system is a dual-optic offset antenna system including a 6 segment 1.2m parabolic main reflector, a quick-install feed-arm, feed-horn system and three axes motorize-able pedestal system.
