AL-4058D

Excessive-Capacity, Highly Accurate Tracking Positioner

AL-4058D, Excessive-Capacity, Highly Accurate Tracking Positioner
One of ORBIT’s largest positioner, AL-4058D is a highly accurate, self-contained elevation over azimuth tracking positioner designed to support massive antennas (5-7.5 meters in diameter). Accordingly, it is well-equipped to meet the demanding requirements of applications such as longer range telemetry tests and tracking of very high resolution LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellites. The AL-4058D is a ground-based tracking solution, and is transportable to fit diverse application needs.

The modular system can be modified to meet customers’ specific requirements based on ORBIT’s field-proven building blocks. The system includes a broad BIT (Built-in-Test) capabilities for the entire pedestal.
