What We Do

Antenna Positioner

MacB’s antenna positioners are designed for use with flat panel antennas and incorporate a custom RF deck. They accommodate small parabolic reflectors and horns and feature simple but rugged drive systems that deliver low backlash, high stiffness and high reliability. A Java-based GUI provides real-time, in-depth command, control and communication capabilities.
