AZIMUTH ANTENNA DRIVE
The azimuth antenna drive is attached to the elevation antenna drive support tube on top of the receiver-transmitter
group and supports the azimuth antenna. The azimuth antenna drive contains the azimuth drive reducer (speed
reducer), azimuth drive motor, azimuth rotary coupler, azimuth data takeoff, and azimuth slipring assembly.
The elevation antenna consists of an elevation reflector, an elevation waveguide radiation horn and polarizer assembly,
and three support arms for the waveguide radiation horn and polarizer assembly. The reflector Is made of a fiberglass
exterior over a lightweight honeycomb core. The reflecting surface is a laminate of woven metal cloth on the reflector
side (concave side).
