The DRM150 Roof Mount Antenna is an ultra-compact tri-band system encompassing the drive control, positioning hardware and beacon receiver, into the fully sealed and aerodynamic antenna enclosure.
This therefore makes the system a robust standalone sub-assembly ready to install onto almost any vehicle. The multi-band operation has been designed for effortless change-over in the field.
The feed, BUC and waveguide for each band is mounted on a simple and quick interchange cartridge, therefore the only connections you need to make are power, L-band and control.
No tools are required to change the band of operation and all satellite acquisition commands are performed via the simple and easy-to-use antenna controller unit. A GPS receiver, electronics compass and levelling inclinometer have also been equipped in the DRM system.
