Antenna Actuator



For Rotary And Fixed Wing Aircraft

The Antenna Actuator significantly increases operating range and improves the performance of the Airborne Downlink system. 

The antenna actuator is used on helicopters to lower the video downlink transmitter antenna below the aircraft in order to avoid the blocking effects and obstructions to the line of sight transmission of the downlink signal caused by the skids and other equipment fitted under the fuselage of the aircraft. 

The Actuator can also be fitted to fixed-wing aircraft to avoid the blanking effect of the wing during turning. 

The control panel may be linked to a ground proximity sensor to provide automatic retraction of the Actuator. 

Two types of control panel are available:

  • Handheld Retractor Control Panel.
  • HRCP Remote Control Panel - which provides comprehensive remote control of Downlink Transmitters and Uplink Receivers.
