AL-1800 Series - ORBIT Communication Systems.

AL-1800 Series

L/S/C -Band Tracking Solution

Band Tracking SolutionAL-1800 series systems constitute a self-contained elevation-over-azimuth tracking solution for L/S/C-band links providing high performance under the most demanding operational conditions. This flexible system may be ground-based, transportable, or shipboard (with additional stabilization) and can serve a wide range of medium range applications such as UAV command and control, aircraft flight test and missile telemetry.

The antenna motion system is based on integrated, state-of-the-art, digital servo amplifiers (DSA) providing a simple RS-422 position control and readout interface.

The Auto-Track function is based on a high-performance E-scan type angle discriminating antenna feed. Supporting different types of antennas, slip rings and rotary joints, the AL-1800 series systems can be adapted for a wide variety of pointing and tracking applications such as aircraft and missile telemetry, TTC, optical monitoring and imaging, weather radar and more.
