No company in the world can claim the number of fixed site TACAN antennas as Rantec Microwave Systems. Over 400 airports worldwide have relied on our proven and reliable TACAN antenna including the United States Air Force, Navy, FAA and several NATO countries. Rantec’s experience in fixed base TACAN antennas exceeds 30 years.
Electronic scan antennas replaced mechanical TACAN antennas decades ago for the obvious reason of reduced power consumption and reduced wear and tear due to the elimination of moving parts. Rantec was the leader in the transition to all solid state circuitry, electronic modulation TACAN antennas with over 400 antennas deployed worldwide. 100,000 hours MTBF is not calculated, it is actual field data backed by a ten year warranty. The antenna has unmatched azimuth stability elevation pattern performance and coverage. The unit is in service by the US Military and FAA and ICAO certified.
The AT-100 pays for itself in reduced spares, reduced maintenance, and lower power consumption. More importantly, the AT-100 assures high availability of an accurate, long life NAVAID providing improved flight safety. In summary, the AT-100 offers outstanding reliability with minimal maintenance.
