Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications equipment and
systems, has introduced a 1.2 meter auto acquisition earth station
antenna system that is ideal for transportable applications serving
communications networks worldwide.
The Andrew Small Aperture Receive Transmit Auto Deploy (SmART AD)
antenna system will debut at IBC 2006 in Amsterdam from September 8-12.
The system's low-cost and robust design are ideally suited for
situations where transportable communications connectivity is needed,
such as oil exploration sites and other remote work locations, emergency
first-responder communications support, construction sites, and military
logistics and support.
Customers benefit from the ease of operation that is built into a
high-quality product. Satellite signals can be acquired with the press
of a button, enabling quick set-up and eliminating the need for trained
installers or technicians.

and global support to create a 1.2 meter transportable antenna system
that is unmatched in price versus performance features," said Russell
Dearnley, director, Earth Station Antennas and Systems, Satellite
Communications, Andrew Corporation.
