Telemetry Tracking Antennas

Safran Data Systems, Inc. offers a complete range of fixed and mobile antenna products to answer every need of telemetry reception, from lightweight COMTRACK up to 9 meter SPARTE antennas, associated with flexible Radio-Frequency Feeds.

COMTRACK

COMTRACK, a Single Axis Compact Tracking Antenna

COMTRACK is the choice of trust, simplicity and performance of more than 100 telemetry tracking operators. Military aircraft testing, helicopters, commercial aircraft and even launch vehicles: COMTRACK is an affordable telemetry reception extension where a roomy and cumbersome parabolic system wouldn’t fit. With its very compact and environmentally-rugged form-factor, the embedded phase array auto tracking antenna offers telemetry reception in L, S or C-band from zenith up to 150 kms range. Its smart integration combining high elevation reception and long range under a single protective radome also enables dual-band mountings for systems having to operate in today’s and tomorrow’s frequencies.
