Protecting Military and Government Networks From Rain, Snow and Ice Over 40 Years

The original de-icing system includes a behind the antenna plenum (enclosure) which is heated with hot air from either liquid propane, natural gas or electric heating units. These systems are for antennas ranging in size from 3.7-meter to 32-meters in diameter. This is based on the original de-icing system technology invented over 40 years ago, which Government customers have relied upon for critical satellite links around the world.

Ice Quake System

The Ice Quake system (U.S. patent) enhances the reliability of the Snow Shieldsystems by a factor of 185 percent. The Ice Quake System also acts as a Rain Shield to prevent water from sheeting on the antenna reflective surface causin rain fade on a Ku or Ka band antenna.

Snow Shield Cover

The Snow Shield Cover is designed for antennas in size from 0.6 meters to 6.3-meters in diameter. The Snow Shield consists of PTFE coated PTFE material, which is virtually invisible to RF, stretched over the satellite antenna. The Snow Shield can be used as a passive, Ice Quake, or heated system that can be added for a higher level of protection.

Introducing the World's First Portable Radome with De-Icing or Air Conditioning Options

For protecting deployable networks, such as Coms-on-the-Pause (COTM) terminals and small satellite earth station antennas operating in extreme environments like Sand Storms, Ice Storms, and Rain Storms, the Portable Radome offers rapid installation, cost-savings, and high wind speed operational ability and survivability compared to inflatable radome systems that have been used in the past. The Portable Radome consists of an easy-to-install earth station antenna / VSAT antenna cover made of architectural fabric, which is virtually invisible to RF, installed over satellite antenna. The Portable Radome can be used as a passive, or air-conditioned system that can be added for a higher level of protection.
