Derived from the Olympus Antenna Deployment Mechanism, this mechanism is supplied to all Eurostar platforms and has flown on over 12 missions. By virtue of an ingenious dual axis system within the passive trunnion, reflector trimming in both pitch and roll axes can be achieved, providing the ability to fine-tune a beam pattern on the Earth’s surface and improving overall payload performance.
Controlled deployment of reflectors, and antennas. Antenna trimming in 2 axes (pitch and roll)
