Model No 15DBS and 15DBSS


Model 15DBS is a 1.5 metre, linearly polarised, DBS Band offset reflector suitable for fixed site or vehicle mounted applications.
Model 15DBSS is a 1.5 metre, linearly polarised, DBS Band offset reflector suitable for flyaway applications.
Both models can be supplied with the relevant positioner system if required.
Electrical
Rx 10.95−12.75 GHz
Frequency
Tx 17.3−18.1 GHz
Rx 43.4 dBi at W/G output of OMT (11.7 GHz)
Gain
Tx 47.0 dBi at W/G output of OMT (17.3 GHz)
For 90% of all sidelobes the antenna gain in a direction away from boresight is within the envelope:
In general: In azimuth plane:
29−25 log θ dBi 1.5°< θ < 35.0° 23−25 log θ dBi 1.5° < 0 < 2.5°
Tx Band -10 dBi 35.0°< θ < 140.0° 19−25 log θ dBi 2.5° < 0 < 15.0°
Off axis gain +5 dBi 140.0°< θ < 180.0° -10 dBi 15.0° < 0 < 140.0°
+5 dBi 140.0° < 0 < 180.0°
29−25 log θ dBi 1.5°< θ < 35.0°
Rx Band -10 dBi 35.0°< θ < 140.0°
+5 dBi 140.0°< θ < 180.0°
Polarisation Linear, orthogonal transmit and receive
Tx-Rx >40 dB for 17.3-18.1 GHz
Isolation
Tx-Rx >35 dB for 10.95-12.75 GHz
VSWR <1.3:1 (Tx port 17.3-18.1 GHz)
Using two separate feed chains covering <-35 dB within 0.15° of boresight
17.3−17.6 GHz and 17.6−18.1GHz <-30 dB within co-polar pattern relative
Tx band to co-polar peak
Using a single broadband feed chain covering <-30 dB within 0.15° of boresight <-25 dB
Cross-polarisation 17.3−18.1 GHz within co-polar pattern relative to copolar peak
<-35 dB on boresight
Rx band <-25 dB within 0.25° of boresight
-20 dB peak level relative to peak co-polar level
Mechanical
Tx WG18/UBR 140
Waveguide interfaces
Rx WG17/UBR120
Feed construction Aluminium alloy, alocromed and finished in two-pack white gloss paint
Model 15DBS uses a 1.5 m across-flats one-piece “Diamond” shaped reflector.
Model 15DBSS uses a 1.5 m across-flats four-piece “Diamond” shaped reflector.
Reflector construction
The reflectors are constructed with carbon-fibre skins. All external surfaces are primed
and finished in two-pack polyurethane white paint.
Feed pressurisation (optional) <100%
