Automatic Rotator Tilter System
Comrod Automatic Payload Alignment Systems (CAPAS) enables quick and effective deployment of communication or sensor assets without exposing personnel to unnecessary danger.
The CAPAS-RT Rotator Tilt System accomplishes this by enabling computer controlled tilt and rotation for payloads. The compact design allows the system to be used in a wide range of applications, and the rotator itself does not require a rotary joint for continuous rotation.
CAPAS-RT supports both closed loop and open loop alignment and allows a combination of both. In closed loop alignment mode the system is controlled by a radio transceiver to optimise received signal strength or minimize bit error rate. In open loop alignment mode the system is controlled by the Comrod Integrated Mission Planning System. The powerful drive system coupled with the integrated magnetic or optional GPS compass allows fast and accurate positioning of payloads demanding high pointing accuracy. Closed loop feedback from the radio can optimize the alignment within a fraction of a degree.
The CAPAS-RT System is fully rugged per MIL-STD-810, and is suitable for a wide variety of tactical masts.
