Tracking Antennas
 
The concept of a Tracking Antenna presents several novel and useful possibilities when considering applications making use of vehicles (in particular unmanned vehicles of any segment). This kind of antennas allows the establishment of a constant data link between a vehicle in motion and a satellite or ground station enabling them to point to a desired target at every instant. Tracking antennas are especially interesting for very directional communications or communications in environments subject to strong interference (both intentional and unintentional) as well as communications involving mobile vehicles that require directional beams. TEKEVER CS is designing, developing and commercializing tracking antennas focusing first on unmanned vehicles (land and air) and later on other types of vehicles.
Robustness and Operation
TEKEVER CS Tracking Antennas possess different types of tracking systems either based on mechanical steering or electronically tracking (e.g. through beam forming and radiation pattern adaptation). Depending on the type of application the tracking methodologies based on techniques of beam-forming, radiation diagram control (so called CRPA antennas) can increase significantly TEKEVER CS antennas resistance to jamming and interference.

Adaptability and Mobility
Particularly suited to vehicular and other mobile applications, TEKEVER CS Tracking Antennas are developed to maintain a high performance level regardless of the platform they're mounted on and are capable of tracking mobile targets accurately (e.g. tracking platform with speeds up to 90Km/h),. These antennas can also be used for different applications: whether it is data or payload communications (like a satellite relay or downlinking payload data from a mobile vehicular node) or TTC (Telemetry, Tracking & Control) traffic

Deployment and Installation
The deployment time and setup procedures of TEKEVER CS Tracking Antennas are planned to be the shortest possible in a wide variety of environments. These antennas are devices that can be mounted easily, securely and rapidly onto the desired platform or on fixed installations (using for example poles) by a minimum number of crew personnel keeping overall deployment times at very low values.

Materials and Portability
TEKEVER CS Tracking Antennas have different coatings and building materials which enable them to be very light-weighted. Also the use of smart design materials (like carbon fibres) leads to superior equipment adaptable to the particular needs of each operational scenario and improving efficiency and rationalization of resources.
