PALO ALTO, Calif., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harris Corp. Government Communications Division has purchased 12 4.6-meter Trifold® antennas from the ASC Signal Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) for use in a Department of Defense program. The total value of the contract exceeds $10 million.
CPI ASC Signal Division's TriFold antennas are capable of being deployed by one person in less than 30 minutes and are designed for worldwide use in high-density data, voice and communications networks. Like all CPI ASC Signal earth station antennas, they provide high gain and exceptional pattern recognition with a choice of transmit/receive feed assemblies. The antennas purchased by Harris come equipped with CPI ASC Signal Division's Next-Generation Controller (NGC), patented sub-reflector tracking (SRT) system and quad-band feed systems.
The NGC gives the operator a single, simplified, central device to control and operate multiple antenna systems. The NGC's advanced features include remote access and tracking capabilities built into the system, an internal spectrum analyzer, redundancy control systems and many other high-performance controller features. The SRT provides the antenna with the ability to track the satellite to within 1/1000th of a degree without moving the main reflector as any part of the tracking, providing not only greater accuracy but reduced operating and maintenance expenses.
"CPI ASC Signal Division's Trifold antennas will aid in advanced research that aims to increase the navigation and communication operations available to warfighters in-theater," said Keith Buckley, president of CPI ASC Signal Division. "Their advanced features provide a reliable platform for innovation in military applications."
