Self-Contained Ground Station
This low-gain antenna based on the Quasonix Acquisition Aid Antenna, coupled with the industry-leading RDMS™ telemetry receiver, is the perfect solution for portable or mast-mounted antenna applications. Combined with our state-of-the-art antenna control unit (ACU) with its straightforward user interface, the QTrack™ enables simple and robust data capture for your missions.
The QTrack™ antenna is enhanced by our industry-leading innovation, including HyperTrack™, which uses the Data Quality Metric (DQM) to intelligently determine validity of the received data, rejecting interference and allowing the antenna to continue to track the test article.
Check out a demonstration of the dexterity of a QTrack™ antenna as it auto-tracks and recovers telemetry data from a drone. Can your antenna do this?
Two-person transport and setup (transport case recommended); free-standing antenna can be set up easily using a Moog Gibraltar tripod (model 4-60450-0A, available from Quasonix as part number QC-ACC-001) or equivalent
Allows for portable, bi-directional Ethernet Via Telemetry (if equipped for HyperTrack™)
- Simplified Two-Cable Connection
Requires only 115 VAC 1Ø 60 power and an RJ45 Ethernet connection (with IP option)
- Simultaneous LHCP and RHCP RF Outputs
2-channel rotary joint allows continuous azimuth travel
- Dual Axis Pedestal
Multi-band SCM feed mounted in a dual axis pedestal; includes power supplies, slip rings, and rotary joint
- Electronic Scanning for Highly Dynamic Targets
Quasonix feeds sweep the beam electronically, allowing scan rates up to 50 kHz, greatly mitigating the challenges inherent in tracking targets that impose high degrees of amplitude modulation on transmitted signals
