MT-BB100 MKIII Ku band VSAT antennaKu Band VSAT Equipment


Based on the field-proven technology of the BB90 and the BB100, the improved MT-BB100 MKIII features a redesigned parabolic dish for optimal RF performance and feed incorporating cutting-edge computer simulation software used in aerospace missions. The MT-BB100 MKIII offers fast tracking and outstanding signal acquisition, even without an external gyrocompass. Locking information is gathered from an internal tuner, the satellite modem and the AGC (automatic gain control) level.

The MT-BB100 MKIII antenna is constructed of aluminum and carbon fiber and weighs less than 143 pounds (65 kg). This lightweight construction allows for the easiest antenna installation on the market. The MT-BB100 MKIII is designed to minimize stress on belts and motors for maximum operational life and minimum maintenance. Thanks to its rigid construction and fast tracking algorithms, the MT-BB100 MKIII antenna maintains remarkable tracking performance at all times, defying ship vibrations and heavy sea conditions.

The carbon fiber parabolic dish features a patent-pending metallic coating, resulting in an extremely lightweight dish, impervious to thermal and mechanical flaws with a smooth, conductive surface. The dish feed mechanism combines deep-space probing technology with internal corrugations to achieve best-in-class impedance matching and a controlled radiation pattern. The combined result is a top-performing ADE (axially displaced ellipse) dish offering highly efficient tracking precision and very low side lobes.

The MT-BB100 MKIII is compliant with the most demanding standards, as required by Anatel, Intelsat and Eutelsat. (*Pending approval; previous models have been approved.)
