Hiltron develops automatic system to switch between Ku and C-band feeds
Hiltron has developed an automatic system to switch between Ku and C-band feeds. Standard feeds for both bands are moved into the focus of the antenna.
Depending on which feed is in the focus, the antenna receives signals in Ku or C band. This system is universal and can be used for all kind of feeds.
In co-operation with a satellite services provider Hiltron have successfully tested the capabilities of the standard Ku and C band HMAM to track satellites flying in low Earth orbits. Research has been undertaken to maximise the availabilities of access to the satellite.
