The Global Ku Antenna's field-proven high precision components provide state-of-the-art satellite tracking capability and consistent signal quality. The innovative QEST panel delivers higher performance and is significantly thinner and lighter than existing designs. This enables the unique three-way steering mechanism, which for the first time allows a Ku-band antenna to operate with consistent performance globally.
"This antenna is truly revolutionary and its pointing system is unique in the market," commented
First delivery of the Global Ku Antenna is anticipated in mid-2016.
