L-3 Corporation

Antenna Systems, RSS/TT&C

L3 Datron has been providing antenna systems for Remote Sensing Satellite Ground Receiving Stations since the early 1970’s.  We have delivered advanced antenna systems to commercial, scientific and military customers, customized to meet their specialized mission requirements.

Our fully positionable, 7° tilt, third axis is available with our RSS/TT&C systems for complete, uninterrupted hemispherical coverage (no overhead keyhole and coverage down to <5° elevation).  The systems are designed to meet the wide range of environmental demands of the modern ground station located in arctic areas, desert regions as well the tropics of Asia and South America.  We have RF solutions to meet all known RSS downlink frequencies and polarization schemes.  With advanced RF optics, we can provide multi-band configurations for both downlink and TT&C links for satellite monitoring and control.


Our most advanced Remote Sensing Antennas feature our state-of-the-art control scheme and high COTS content for lower life cycle costs and extreme reliability for missions requiring small to medium aperture (3.1 through 8.5-meter) reflectors.
