Andrew 7.6m Satellite Antenna System loaded for shipment to Hellas-Sat Satellite Operator on Cyprus

In December 2022 a refurbished Andrew 7.6m Antenna system with RF chain was loaded in a dedicated 40ft ocean going container for shipment to Satellite Operator Hellas-Sat located in Cyprus. The antenna was fully refurbished and checked out to include new motors/gearboxes, new jackboots, reflector hardware kits and cabling. Both jackscrews were serviced and greased for proper operation.

Andrew Corporation was the owner of Andrew Satellite Communications business and in 2001 formed into ASC Signal Corporation that was acquired by CPI in September 2015. ASC Signal was integrated into the CPI Antenna Systems Division as of 2017 when in 2020 the ASC Signal Antenna division was sold to Kratos Defense & Security. CPI had acquired GDSatcom Technologies in 2019, but the U.S. Justice Department required CPI to divest its ASC Signal Division since there would be a monopoly on the antenna business in the USA.
