Portable Antenna Solutions



Regardless of the operation, access to reliable communications is critical to mission success. Especially in harsh or challenging environments where safety could be compromised and the inability to communicate could even result in a threat to life, it is essential that satellite communications solutions are fit for purpose, easy to establish and able to withstand the demands of the environment in which they are required to operate. 


Gigasat’s portable antenna solutions are specially designed to operate in the harshest environments, ensuring that users have continuous access to reliable communications regardless of the operating field, location or mission requirements. Ultra has taken a rigorous approach to testing in the development of these technologies, taking every possible measure to offer reassurance that the antennas can be relied upon to operate in extreme temperatures, in any weather conditions and in any terrain. In addition, the antennas have been optimised for portability, minimising size and weight requirements whilst maintaining ease of assembly to ensure they can be quickly deployed to any operating environment to establish a secure, reliable satellite communications capability without adversely impacting transportation or mission requirements.

Flyaway satellite communications is an essential capability in meeting the requirements of missions today. With operators deployed to a variety of challenging environments all over the world, it is critical that portable antenna technologies can be relied upon to provide a reliable communications capability no-matter where or in what environment it is required.

GigaSat’s Flyaway antennas are trusted by government organisations worldwide due to their extreme temperature tolerance and ruggedised, weatherproof design, ensuring they are able to provide a reliable communications capability in even the harshest environments. The range also features MIL-STD-810G certification; providing the highest quality assurance available.

GigaSat’s FA-180 is the ultimate 1.8m flyaway antenna for Ka, Ku, X and C-band and multi-band transmissions on both commercial and military satellites. The FA-180 saves you precious space and time; weighing less than 90kgs and packing into two convenient boxes, it can be deployed in under ten minutes with minimal assembly requirements.
