Steerable Antenna Pedestal
System Controls developed Steerable Antenna Pedestal for Avionics preparation vehicle consists of Azimuth Drive, Elevation System and controllers for both axis. Azimuth is a continuously rotating system with zero backslash Harmonic Drive, motor and encoder. Elevation drive for the required angle is actuated through a linear actuator. Slip rings and rotary joints are provided to terminate the RF and control signals for the motors. Both axis are controlled through RS232 communication as per user-defined protocol.
A PORTABLE RATE TABLE is ideally suited for the field calibration of gyroscopes, accelerometers and other precision sensors, used in aeronautical and aerospace measurements.
