Flat array antenna is mainly used as military radar antenna with
high power amplifier, especially in the mobile field, such as
air-bone radar, ship-bone radar and sat-on-the-drive radar. It can
either be used as supplementary station for telecommunication and
TV program receiving.
Taken waveguide horn as the basic unit, the antenna support dual
directions communication in same panel. Apply it into satellite
communication is rather creative event and features the following
(1)Highly integrated structure design
The communication terminal integrated satellite antenna, servo
system, BUC, LNB in one portable case. The user just need one touch
initiation after open the case when using it. And it can be taken
away manually when the antenna stored. No reflector assembly and
disassembly work necessary. Integrated structure design simplified
operation, makes compact, mini-size, intelligent features a
(2)Advanced technology and excellent performance
Flat panel array antenna adopts new gain acquiring mode based on
the principle of electromagnetic wave diffraction and
interferometry. Taken waveguide horn and ortho-mode coupler as the
basic unit of the antenna, it can perform dual frequency, dual
polarization, and Tx/Rx in the same horn function. It support full
duplex communication with compacted design. All the waveguide horns
on the flat panel direct to the satellite and No reverse radiation
Except waveguide horn and coupler, antenna feed network adopts
waveguide transmission either. Satellite amplifier and LNB connect
the antenna with hard waveguide. All the radio sections of the
antenna are constituted by waveguide which highly improve
efficiency and decrease insert loss.
The improvement of antenna efficiency means the increase of antenna
gain and realize higher transmission rate with the same aperture.
The antenna aperture is 500mm×500mm, receive gain no less than
36.5dBi and Tx gain no less than 37.5dBi, equal to 0.7m ordinary
High power amplifier bearing waveguide and low side lobe, ≤ -22dB,
flat panel array design make the antenna meets satellite
(3)One touch sat-acquiring operation
Built-in servo system makes the satellite acquiring operation
completed by just touching one button.
From opening the portable case to point the satellite accurately,
it takes only 3 minutes and vice versa. Automation simplified the
antenna deployment and storage procedure. During the satellite
acquiring process, the antenna can calibrate the initial azimuth
and title error automatically and decrease requirements of special
skills to the user.
(4)System Extend to Satellite Communication Terminal.
User can integrate satellite communication baseband cards such as
MODEM card, CODEC card to extend the system into Satellite
Communication Integrated Terminal according to their requirements.
They can also realize the business communication only by connecting
customer business terminal with customer data interfaces.
(5)New Materials, Lighter Weight
The carrying weight for the flat panel antenna is 31.5kg as its
structure and cover are made of carbon fiber, this is designed to
ensure antenna reinforced structure, but also easy carrying.
(6)Graphical User Interface On Mobile Phone
The flat panel antenna is designed to use mobile phone APP to
complete whole operation. The mobile phone APP user-friendly
graphical interface design (GUI) makes the antenna operation
process easier and simpler. The mobile phone APP can store 256
Generally, the flat panel antenna is a new satellite communication
equipment featuring its compact, lightweight, high power, faster
deployment, auto-pointing and easy carry away. The flat panel
antenna is combination of various innovative technologies.
