SUBSYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT

Compact Range Feeds

Composed of axially corrugated horns and high quality Ortho-Mode-Transducers (OMT) these feeds offer an excellent broad-band behaviour to match with state-of-the-art range performance in view of an uniform and frequency independent co-polar pattern and outstanding cross-polar purity.
All feeds are furnished with a standardized mechanical interface.
