Carnegie Technologies’ Foldable Ku Antenna Breaks the Size and Cost Barrier for Mission-Critical Communications
WASHINGTON, D.C. and SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 6, 2017) – Remote wireless communications just got a whole lot easier and faster as Carnegie Technologies announced today the debut of the world’s first Foldable Ku Antenna for satellite communications. The Foldable Ku Antenna uses the most advanced technologies and materials available today to create the most powerful Ku-band antenna small enough to fit into a backpack and easy enough for one man to carry, assemble and link in just a couple of minutes. The announcement was made at the Satellite 2017 industry conference in Washington, D.C. running today through March 9th.
Carnegie Technologies developed the Foldable Ku Antenna in a partnership with the Southwest Research Institute® (SwRI®), a United States defense contractor and one of the oldest and largest independent, nonprofit, applied research and development organizations in the United States. The antenna’s revolutionary design uses rugged UV-stabilized PVC with metalized reflector surfaces to deliver Ultra High Throughput Ku-band transmissions more quickly and easily than ever before.
