Comtrack is a single-axis affordable telemetry reception antenna dedicated for lightweight or mobile systems.
With its very compact size and protected under a radome, the embedded phase array auto tracking antenna offers telemetry reception in L, S or C-band up to typically 150 kms range. Its smart integration combining high elevation reception and long range also enables dual-band configurations for systems having to operate in today’s and being ready for tomorrow’s frequencies.
Comtrack is a very handy transportable antenna, as it may also be easily and seamlessly integrated on any infrastructure.
Comtrack is offering reliability, simplicity and performance. It is used by more than 100 telemetry tracking operators for military aircraft testing, helicopters, commercial aircraft and even launch vehicles.
The Sparte 300 series is a dual-axis antenna covering dish size from 1.8m (6 feet) up to 3.0m (10 feet). This antenna has been designed and deployed in the field for more than 10 years, delivered to customers for mission-critical applications where the telemetry reception is at stake.
The Sparte 300 series empowers users with a variety of applications, such as aircraft tracking and very high speed targets with high dynamics. The Sparte 300 can easily be installed on a road trailer that converts the antenna into a mobile version with very short set-up time. It can also be delivered as a shipborne version to secure an accurate tracking at sea.
The Sparte 500 series is a dual-axis antenna covering dish size from 3.7m (12 feet) up to 5.5m (18 feet). The antenna is delivered to customers for mission-critical applications where the telemetry reception is at stake.
Widely used across world test ranges, the Sparte 500 series antennas meet the most demanding flight test profiles, for long range aircraft flight tests, as well as for missiles and launch vehicles. The Sparte 500 can be mounted on a road trailer that makes the antenna a mobile version with quick set-up. It can also come mounted on a skid or even integrated in a 20 feet container that makes it a robust and easily deployable solution when the antenna has to be relocatable. It can also be delivered as a shipborne version to secure an accurate tracking at sea.
The Sparte 700 series is a dual-axis antenna covering dish size from 6.0m (20 feet) up to 7.3m (24 feet). The antenna is delivered to customers for mission-critical applications where the telemetry reception is at stake.
Widely used across world test ranges, the Sparte 700 series antennas meet the most demanding flight test profiles, for long range aircraft flight tests, as well as for missiles and launch vehicles. The Sparte 700 can be mounted on a skid that makes this antenna easily deployable when the antenna has to be relocatable. It can also be delivered as a shipborne version to secure an accurate tracking at sea.
The tri-band feed is the latest and most flexible solution to equip our Sparte series antenna for RF reception.
A common L/S/C front end module fitted with a set of active RF modules allow simultaneous reception and tracking in any frequency band used for telemetry application (L, S and C band), whereas the small and light-weight characteristics makes the feed ideal for any size of dishes from 6 feet (1.8m) to 24 feet (7.3m).
Proposed in single, dual or tri-band configuration, the feed offers the best value for money and flexibility to customers willing to meet current requirements while being ready for the future ; the feed is field upgradable (filtering, frequency, …) with simple RF modules addition or swap, that ensures the capacities are scalable, immobilization limited and operation costs are under control.
TM Maestro control and monitoring software
TM Maestro offers a global & centralized Monitoring & Control of telemetry infrastructure. This software is designed to answer Telemetry operators’ critical requirements:
- Monitor & control any equipment with harmonized look & feel, from antennas to decommutators
- Centralized control of any local & remote TM assets from a single workstation
- Create & manage any TM configuration
- Simplify & automate TM infrastructure testing
Based on a user configurable GUI, TM Maestro copes with different users’ profiles and phases of your missions (preparation, live flight test, playback, station maintenance). Scalable and evolutive, adding a new TM equipment can be easily managed by TM Maestro. Unlimited number of equipment to be controlled can be added, that makes it a fully scalable system.
TM Maestro software: control every asset of your range
