Introduction to Satellite Communication Antennas

The application of Satellite Communication Antenna

As the input and output channel for RF signals, antennas are an important component of satellite communication systems. The performance of the antenna affects the overall system performance, and the distance between the antenna and the satellite is far.

To ensure effective signal transmission, most earth stations use parabolic antennas. The antennas provided by Dolph Microwave are all parabolic antennas with high gain and good directionality.

The main parameters required to find the Satellite Communication Antenna

1. Antenna type: flight antenna, ground station or mobile rapid deployment antenna;

2. Diameter: 1.2, 1.8, 2.4, 3.7, 4.5, 5.3, or 6.2 meters or larger dish antennas;

3. Frequency range: L band, C band, X band, Ku band, DBS band and Ka band or other;

4. Polarization: linear polarization or circularly polarized;

5. Port: 2 ports, 4 ports or multi-ports;

6. Driving method: electric or manual;

7. Installation location: building roof or ground;

8. Tracking type: step tracking or single-pulse type;

9. Reflector material: aluminum or carbon fiber.

Common problems with Satellite Communication Antenna

What are the different types of satellite communication antennas?

The types of antennas are distinguished according to different criteria. According to the number of reflector surfaces, the satcom antenna for sale can be divided into dual reflectors and single reflectors. Central focusing antennas and offset antennas are available for feed methods.

What are the characteristics of satellite communication?

  • Large coverage area and long communication distance;

  • Multi-link capacity;

  • Wide frequency band and large communication capacity;

  • Good communication quality and high reliability;

  • Flexible communication;

  • Different satellites cover different bands.

What is the difference between Leo, MEO, HEO and geosynchronous orbit?

  • LEO: Low Earth Orbit (approximately 700-1,500 kilometers above the Earth's surface);

  • MEO: Medium Earth Orbit (approximately 10,000-20,000 kilometers above the Earth's surface) near apogee and perigee;

  • HEO: Highly Elliptical Orbit (63.4 degrees or 116.6 degrees);

  • GEO: Geosynchronous Orbit (35,768 kilometers; time period: 24 hours).

Dolph Microwave's satellite communication antenna types can be divided into three types: earth station antenna, flyaway satellite antenna, and quick deploy antenna. Frequency bands include single-band, dual-band, and multi-band, such as C band, Ku band, Ka band, X band, S band, as well as C & Ku, Ku & Ka, and S & X dual-band.

In addition to standard diameters and frequency ranges, customization is also available according to customer requirements. If you have any requirements, please let us know at any time.
