Overview

SOTM & radar

We offer rotary joints for Ka, Ku & X-band satellite-on-the-move (SOTM) high-data-rate communication systems for military or commercial mobile platforms on land, sea or air.

High current capability on the receive channel means the antenna’s LNB and tracking system can be powered via the rotary joint, thereby eliminating the need for additional slip rings, saving space and weight. A number of different configurations are available to suit specific antenna requirements.

Our Rotary Joint Designs

Design, manufacture & service

Our designs include coaxial contacting & contact free rotary joints in frequency ranges from DC to 40 GHz. We can integrate coaxial or waveguide designs with slip rings and encoders. Our dual channel units have excellent isolation between channels, where space is critical we offer very compact outlines.  DC capability on the receive channel means the antenna’s LNB and tracking system can be powered via the rotary joint, thereby eliminating the need for additional slip rings, saving space and weight. Different configurations are available to suit specific antenna requirements.

In addition to our SOTM range units are available for continuously rotating radar systems such as S-Band air traffic control or C & X-Band military surveillance radars. We’re able to inspect, service & refurbish units that have been operating in the field, just contact us for further details.
