SATCOM ANTENNA TESTING

These hexapods are used by R&D services working in SATCOM antennas to test the stabilization performances of the motorized system of the antennas.

These systems are later installed on boats, trucks or any other kind of vehicles, so the motorized systems need to be adjusted in order to enable the highest communication performances between the antenna and the satellite.

OUR EXPERIENCE FOR SPECIFIC NEEDS

SYMETRIE realized a wide range of swell simulators using hexapod technology. Thanks to our metrology background, the choice of this technology is even more important that it allows very real simulation with accurate trajectories.

Our range of products can be easily adapted to your special needs regarding speed, actuator travel range and payload.

Our flexibility allows us special design.

APPLICATION SPECIFICITIES

 Outdoor version in option
 C axis (extra rotation platform integrated in the mobile platform to reach ±180° in Rz) in option
Mistral hexapod is the most often used hexapod for SATCOM antennas testing, Sirocco can be a solution too.
