What is the average data rate?2018-01-27T20:23:15+00:00

We have a flexible system that works with whatever you have – 35 – 45 db of gain – 10MBits/second – equivalent to your home internet. You can do what you do in the field on a hand-held device

No repointing to find satellites. We have 60 degree angle so that you receive your data when and where you need it.

What’s the set up time?2018-01-27T20:20:56+00:00

2 meter sphere – On station in 10 minutes. Using a field battery 15-20 min.
1 meter system – 5 min

It’s as easy as deploying an air mattress and all automated.

How much do these antennas weigh?2018-01-27T20:04:06+00:00

Our 2 meter inflatable sphere weighs approximately 10 lbs.

The 1 meter sphere is less than 5lbs all included.

The backpack portable is approx 2 lbs.

How far down towards the horizon can you get with this high gain?2018-01-27T19:57:57+00:00

Visibility time of satellites matter. FreeFall’s antennas have the most effective satellite view period with an exiting satellite. We can view the satellite 90% of the time it’s over the horizon.

Other competitors have are limited in elevation angles.
We can do 5 degrees to 90 degrees without repointing the antenna and don’t need any special apparatus or accessories to do so.

Instead of the other antennas that can only see 65 degrees –  we are capturing 130/140 degrees.

Why should I care about electronic beam steering?2018-01-27T20:28:57+00:00

Electronic steering keeps you locked on should you have any wind gusts or misalignments unlike a traditional parabolic antenna which needs to be manually pointed.

Old Way

Parabolic was the old way

New Way

Our spherical reflector


It works with any frequency including (X through Ka-band fabricated, C through W band possible)

Single line feed provides ~60 deg coverage, 3 feeds cover ~ 170 degrees.

Our line feed and spherical reflector combination allows the beam to be steered in virtually any direction without physically reorienting the antenna.

With FreeFall Aerospace antennas you will automatically have a higher data rate and gain.
