Overview

The PFA-180 is most compact & lightweight motorized Fly-Away Antenna solution ideally suited to the worldwide Satellite market. It can be easily transported with IATA weight compliant flight cases so it can be transport by a commercial airline to wherever you need.

No tools required for PFA-180 installation thanks to its modular design. No special training needed for operator. Only two person make it ready for transmission under 10 minutes. The PFA-180 antenna system is a offset antenna system including 6 segments; 1.8m parabolic reflector, a quick-install feed-arm, feed-horn system and three axes pedestal system. Everything is put in two IATA compliant rugged boxes.

The precision, accurate reflector surface provides remarkably low side lobes and excellent cross polar performance for the antenna. C, X, Ku and Ka Bands feed-horn system is available.
