The HRN-2 Airborne Dual Directional Antenna Pedestal is a lightweight communication Antenna Pedestal, designed to provide dual, independent axis pointing capability in azimuth, in a very compact package.
The HRN2 Pedestal contains two precision DC servo mechanical drive assemblies, RF components and an integral digital servo electronic circuit card. The two antennas can be pointed independently to any azimuth angle according to external position commands received through an RS-422 serial communication channel.
The HRN2 Pedestal is designed to withstand rough airborne environmental conditions (when mounted within a protective radome).The HRN2 is compact, lightweight and has a low power consumption.
The HRN2 is in daily use in several UAV applications.
