Tracking and Pointing Systems


Advanced Technology

If you have a telemetry application in need of a system, TCS has the extensive line of dual axis tracking antennas / pedestals to create the solution.  All pedestals are designed and built with only the most advanced technology for efficiency, simplicity, cost effectiveness and ease of maintenance.

Our tracking and pointing systems product line encompasses everything from 16 inches to 7 meters, with operation from UHF through Ka-Band, and includes convenient features to allow for both portable and fixed configuration.  Every system we build is customized to suit the demands of your application. 


We recognize that your system has to be as flexible and ready to respond to changing situations as you are.  That’s why we designed the M1 Antenna Control Unit—it uses a Pedestal Interface that’s smart enough to control any and every antenna—whether we built it or you hire us for an upgrade.  Move it from one antenna to another and it automatically adjusts.  This enables you to:

  • Have a common interface that works across all of your telemetry assets
  • Reduce training times and costs
  • Reduce the number of needed spares
  • Have emergency capabilities--move the controller from an asset not being used for quick deployment

Optimal Configuration

TCS goes beyond the standard parabolic reflector:
  • 4-Cup Antennas
  • Multi-Band Feeds
  • Cosecant Squared Systems
  • Boresite Antennas
  • Flight Termination Systems
  • Log Periodic Antennas

We also offer embedded controllers and laptop-based solutions as alternatives to full rack-based Antenna Controllers.  We assess your space and current technology and work with you to achieve optimal configuration.
