Positioners and Masts

Positioners and Masts

A range of positioning systems are available for military and civilian ground-based, shipboard and airborne applications. It is possible to integrate these with antenna and RF systems.

These positioner systems include an antenna positioner, Antenna Control Unit (ACU) and cables allowing the positioner to be controlled and monitored indoors. The positioners can operate in Azimuth or Azimuth and Elevation axis. They have high load capacity and are designed to withstand extreme terrain and weather conditions.

A range of antenna masts are also available, including tubular, telescopic and winch-driven models. The range goes up to 18 m, supporting top loads of up to 35 kg.

PPM Systems can design and manufacture antennas to meet specific requirements. To discuss bespoke antenna design, please contact us.
