Full-featured antenna controls for SmallSAT, LEO, and MEO satellites
Model 2200 and Model 2300 Antenna Control Systems are specifically for full-motion LEO and MEO antenna applications. With velocity control of smart motors, antenna speeds well beyond ten degrees per second are supported.
When coupled with the 2048 Drive Interface (Smart Motor Controller), the 2200 is well-suited to — and interfaces seamlessly with — M2 Antenna Systems’ AE-2000S (http://www.m2inc.com/FGAE2000) and its Moog Animatics SmartMotors. Refer to the Radeus Labs Hardware Interface Control Document for the RL2048SMC’s interfaces description.
Model 2200 & 2300 Antenna Control Systems — about the 2200|2300 ACU and the Model 2350 Drive Cabinet (rev. 20200318-01)
The Model 2200|2300 covers the bases: from cube-sats and small-sats to the existing infrastructure of GEOs. All Radeus Labs control systems are designed to be easy to install, easy to use, and with an extended lifespan of mechanical components.
Contact Radeus Labs for information about the Model 2200 and Model 2300 Antenna Control Systems. Contact M2 Antenna Systems at 559.432.8873 to learn about the AE-2000S.
Modes of Operation
|Steptrack||Advanced algorithm for periodic or signal-level-triggered scans to peak the signal level|
|Predictive Track||Tracks targets based on an orbital model developed from prior Step Track data points|
|NORAD TLE||Automated tracking based on NORAD two-line element sets|
|TLE with Steptrack||Track using TLE as a base model but add periodic Step Tracks to correct for offsets over time|
|Longitude||Points the antenna to AZ and EL angles determined by the longitudinal orbital slot|
|Look Angles||Points the antenna to user-supplied AZ, EL and POL angles|
|Manual Jog||Dedicated front-panel antenna jog controls|
