WTW-LSC-20-iNET Autotracking Antenna

WTW-LSC-20-iNET, a portable, mobile dual axis Autotracking Antenna for the L-, S- and C-Band.
This portable light weight Autotracking Antenna for mobile und stationary applications is perfect for drone (UAV), missile and general flight tests where a bidirectional link is needed.

With the built-in additional electronics developed by WTW, it is possible to build a bidirectional link, e.g. S-band and C-band data sent to the missile to reconfigure the on-board telemetry.
Thus, the antenna system is iNET ready and future-proof for the flight test industry.

The infeed power to the WTW-LSC-20-iNET is max. 0.5W. Internal amplifiers amplify the signal by 33dB before the signal is radiated in the S or C band via the ~ 20dBi antenna

The basic configuration of the WTW-LSC-20-iNET is identical to the WTW-LSC-20.

In the 2nd Video we transmitted a Signal on 5150 MHz and converted it down in the antenna to 2235 MHz. That Signal was going into our Single Chanel Monopulse Electronic and then the Sum-Signal to the Lumistar LS27.
