“Covid-19” Product

No, this product has nothing to do with the pandemic, except that it was developed during the first lock down we had (mid-March to mid-May). Our engineers designed this RF Monopulse scanner plate to be used with our Ka-band tracking system. It passed all tests with flying colors. It is now packaged and ready for customer pickup.

Covid-19 upgrades at TELENOR Norway

This covid-19 pandemic lock down forced us to change our ways of doing things; We distance-trained this customer and supported him over the phone to allow him to upgrade 4 systems (13m and 9m Vertex monopulse, 8m Vertex steptrack) with our NEYRPIC®ACU550.

Strengthening our team

Pierre has thirty-five years of international experience contracting for major companies such as Harris, Scientific-Atlanta, L3, GD Satcom and Viasat.

He worked in installation, testing and commissioning of earth stations and satellite networks and was often in challenging environments including conflicts areas. He also has several years’ experience in operation and maintenance of earth stations, project management and logistics. He was happily retired in Thailand but we managed to pull him out of retirement to join the NPC SYSTEM team.

Pierre will manage our ASIA-PACIFIC operations from Bangkok and promote the NEYRPIC satellite tracking systems product line. 

He will be involved throughout the entire process from initial contact to system commissioning. 

We welcome him and wish him luck with his new endeavor.

NPC SYSTEM latest Monopulse System for INSTER Madrid

NPC SYSTEM is finalizing the last tests on this monopulse system for NATO site, shipping is scheduled for June 11. 

This monopulse system controls a 9m Alpha Satcom antenna in Ka Band. Both motors are managed by variable speed inverters giving necessary high torque at low speed allowing precise movements when locked on a satellite and tracking it using monopulse tracking. 

Highly efficient monopulse tracking algorithms are executed by NPC SYSTEM latest generation of controller NEYRPIC®ACU550
