A wide range of state-of-the-art horn-based and splash plate feed systems are available for prime focus and single and dual-offset antennas covering all the key satellite communication bands, including C-, SHF-, Ku-, DBS- and Ka-band frequencies. Linear and circular polarization feed chains are included, in 2, 3 and 4-port configurations.
The Satcom Product Catalog includes part numbers and configurations for all standard feed chain and reflector antenna systems and also gives a flavor of the vast range of custom configurations and projects that can be undertaken on request.
Cobham uses its feed chains in its DIAMOND range of class-leading, high performance, multi-frequency reflector antennas. These high quality, carbon fiber, antennas are available in solid or segmented formats in sizes of 1m, 1.2m and 1.5m. A range of reflector accessories, services and options are also available.
Two high efficiency X-band flat plate array products are also available, one designed for portable satcom terminals and another for Satcom-On-The-Move (SOTM) applications. Both antennas achieve overall aperture efficiencies of up to 60 percent, matching equivalent front-fed reflector systems. A family of Ka-band flat panel products is also being developed.
Cobham's on-site antenna test range facilities, which are accredited by some of the world's largest satellite operators and available for third-party testing, are described in detail in the catalog.
