WTW Control room and lifting platform in a 20ft container for the ESA

WTW delivered a 20ft container to ESA in autumn 2023, which was specifically designed for the customer’s application. Here too, WTW has developed a special lifting platform that includes a self-leveling system that decouples the lifting platform from the container in order to prevent vibrations from being transmitted to the telescope.
The work area in the container is fully air-conditioned and offers up to 3 workstations.

ESA has installed the telescope and completed further integration work in recent months.

WTW supplies the WTW-SX-31

The WTW-SX-31 is a 2.4m parabolic tracking antenna for reception in the S and X bands. In this configuration, the WTW-SX-31 is installed in an air-suspended telemetry trailer with a heated control room with 4 workstations.

WTW Anlagenbau GmbH supplies another 20ft control room with an integrated lifting platform

WTW Anlagenbau GmbH supplies another 20ft control room with an integrated lifting platform for a 1.6 ton telescope.
During the FAT (Factory Acceptance Test), among other things, the reproducible positioning of the lifting platform was tested using a high-precision laser measuring system. It was found that the accuracy when repeatedly approaching the upper end position is better than 0.002° and the height deviation is less than 0.1mm.

The weight of the telescope was simulated with a filled water tank.

WTW Anlagenbau GmbH is a Gold Sponsor of WARR Rocketry

Commentary by WARR Rocketry on Instagram:
“We would like to give a shoutout to our newest Gold Sponsor @wtw_antennas !
With their LSC20 tracking antenna we are able to have excellent telemetry reception of our experimental sounding rocket launches across the entire mission profiles.
The antenna with integrated low noise amplifier automatically tracks the GPS position it receives from our flight computer. It also includes a high-resolution Zoom-Camera as a bonus!
We tested it during the EX-1B launch in May and got 100% coverage over the flight profile. No telemetry packet was lost. Thanks to WTW for lending us the antenna and supporting us technically, as well as organisationally!

We look forward to further collaboration with such an amazing supporter!🚀

WTW has delivered another WTW-S-23

WTW has delivered a WTW-S-23 including joystick and air-conditioned radome to Milano Systems Srl in Italy.
As a system integrator, Milano Systems Srl has developed a telemetry van as a complete ground station for mobile use.

WTW Antennas are now ready for iNET

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.


WTW-Joystick with Fiber Optic link for RF and Control

The WTW-Joystick is a combination of Ethernet joystick and remote controller. Via the WTW joystick the antenna settings can be pre-configured via the touch display, all important parameters and modes can be displayed and controlled.
The WTW-Joystick is also available as fiber optic version, which allows you to connect the RF1, RF2 and CTRL to the antenna via fiber optic. In this case, a fiber optic converter module is installed under the antenna. The steel armored fiber optic cable can then connect the control room to the antenna, which is up to several kilometers away. The receiver can then be connected to the WTW-Joystick or to the antenna, depending on the application. In the configuration where the receiver is in the control room, simply connect the RF1, RF2, AM and AGC connectors between the receiver and the WTW-Joystick by coax cable. When the receiver is at the antenna, the RF1, RF2, AM and AGC connectors of the antenna and receiver are connected by coaxial cable as usual.

CNC milling machine at WTW

At the beginning of 2019, WTW acquired its own CNC milling machine for the production of antenna and pedestals in order to be able to cater to customer requirements even more flexibly and quickly.
