Carnegie Technologies Debuts Foldable Ku Antenna
Carnegie Technologies announced the debut of its foldable Ku antenna for satellite communications. According to the company, the antenna is small enough to fit into a backpack and easy enough for one man to carry, assemble and link in just a couple of minutes.
Carnegie Technologies developed the foldable Ku antenna in a partnership with the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), a U.S. defense contractor. The antenna’s design uses rugged UV-stabilized Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) with metalized reflector surfaces to deliver ultra high-throughput Ku-band transmissions.
“Our Ku antenna is perfect for things like remote oil drilling operations sending sample data for analysis, military reconnaissance operations sending encrypted photos, first responders monitoring wildfires and floods, or media outlets that need small, highly mobile crews to cover breaking news events,” said Paul Struhsaker, CTO of Carnegie Technologies.
