Picture 1: QuadSAT's antenna testing solution flying in front of an antenna.
QuadSAT is a Denmark-based company that supplies airborne antenna testing solutions. QuadSAT’s system delivers safety in the performance of RF applications such as satcom- and radar systems by providing an automated, flexible, and location-independent system for in-situ tests and measurements. The systems consist of state-of-the-art drone technology integrated with a custom RF payload as well as automation- and measurement software.
As a compact system, it is transported directly to the antenna and flies in a pattern to simulate a satellite, resulting in a cost-effective, operationally flexible, and timesaving solution of testing antennas.
