Flexibility - The unique design of the TP100Ku will not only allow for operation on traditional Ku-Band satellites but also allow access to multiple Ka-Band payloads, increasing the number of options to get your important data uploaded. 

Robust- The design includes 1.0M high gain carbon fibre reflector, ‘no-tools’ assembly, folding feed arm assembly, quick deploy tri-pod, inclinometer and fine adjust on Azimuth and Elevation. The tri-pod has detachable sand feet to allow for ground anchors to be fitted ensuring maximum stability for reliable operation. The lightweight, high quality and reliable construction in conjunction with high gain 1M carbon reflector will ensure excellent performance even at the extremities of satellite footprint. 

Ease of Pointing- The TP100Ku has been designed to assist in the pointing to any satellite. It has an integrated GPS, electronic compass and inclinometer that will give the user a target Azimuth/ Elevation and Polarisation position and actual read-out for the true position of the axis. 

Clever Power Options- The TP100 in conjunction with the ruggedized outdoor modem (ODU) can be powered from a variety sources, either from a 240V via a PSU, direct from a 12V vehicle supply or from standard camera batteries (Vee-lock, PAG etc).
