ND SatCom, an SES ASTRA company, introduced a new Antenna Control Unit (ACU) generation. The new ACU generation contains three major components for ND SatCom’s system solutions: for fixed ground stations, mobile uplinks based on the company’s SkyRAY Compact / MAS antenna subsystems and SkyRAY Light systems for IP-based contribution. All functionalities of ND SatCom’s Antenna Pointing System (APS) are integrated into the 2RU ACU components.

The new ACU generation no longer requires an additional PC or laptop to control and operate antenna systems. This provides real one-button-operation for an auto-pointing antenna system such as SkyRAY Compact or SkyRAY Light.

As ND SatCom’s core components for customer networks and applications are developed and manufactured inhouse, they are precisely tailored to the company’s satcom solutions. With its newly launched broadcast and VSAT component RCU 5000 (Redundancy Control Unit) and ACU generation, ND SatCom has made a substantial effort to satisfy current customer demands for more availability and automation as well as higher system efficiency and cost savings.
