CPI Antenna Systems Integrates New Large-Aperture Satellite Earth Stations into Its Product Line

Plano TX (SPX) Sep 20, 2018

CPI Antenna Systems Division (CPI ASD) Is a multinational manufacturer of high-performance, highly engineered antenna systems for satellite communications, telemetry, radar, electronic warfare and high-frequency (HF) applications.

Earlier this year, the Antenna Systems Division (ASD) of Communications and Power Industries (CPI) extended its product line with a range of new large-aperture earth station antennas, as part of a previously announced technology acquisition.

These new antennas range in diameter from 7.2 meters up to 18 meters, can be configured for C-, K-, Ku-, X- and DBS-band operation, and feature high-efficiency optics and precision high-rigidity mounts.

Over the past several months, CPI ASD has been working to integrate these antennas into its product line, making them compatible with its industry-leading antenna operating technology and upgrading their capabilities to complement CPI ASD's existing product portfolio.

In addition to their high-performance design, the new antennas can now be configured with CPI ASD technologies such as the Next-Generation Controller (NGC). The NGC is a powerful, standards-based platform for controlling every aspect of antenna operation.

CPI ASD's NGC can interface with a full suite of tracking technologies, and also offers features and options that include a built-in spectrum analyzer and beacon receiver, transmit and receive chain-switching capabilities, system redundancy and carrier monitoring.

"The addition of these large-diameter earth stations represents a major expansion of the CPI Antenna Systems product line, which now runs from 2.4-meter nomadic terminals up to 18-meter earth station antenna systems engineered for extreme rigidity and high-accuracy tracking under gravity and wind loads.

"By pairing these new antennas with our state-of-the-art technology, we can continue to provide the outstanding performance that customers expect from us on a broader and deeper product offering," said Andre Jones, vice president for business development for CPI ASD.
