The TacSat Razor Antenna is an innovative solution to the need to provide front-line forces with robust, lightweight, on-the-move, high performance, tactical satellite communications.
Weighing around 1 kg, the TacSat Razor Antenna uses patented product design to offer a rapid deployment antenna in the UHF tacsat band. It is designed specifically for physically demanding battlefield conditions. A report addressing the usage of the antenna with regards to relevant radiation hazard standards is available.
Innovative and patented construction and deployment technologies make it easy and quick to deploy; and able to be operated in a “hands free” mode, keeping troops both ready for action and fully informed.
The TacSat Razor Antenna can be simply attached to the side of a standard military rucksack. Alternatively, it can be mounted on a standard tripod or camera spike or on a vehicle using a magnetic mount.
Users simply pull a strap to launch the antenna from its housing. The antenna is withdrawn back into the container by pulling the same strap in the other direction. A modular construction facilitates cleaning and ease of repair in the field.
The TacSat Razor Antenna reduces time to deploy and snagging; and eliminates the soldier ‘down time’ incurred by less effective ergonomic designs. It is environmentally qualified to MIL-STD-810G and is IP68 rated for water immersion. An instruction manual is provided.
