The German mast manufacturer SMAG Mobile Antenna Masts developed a new mast system in cooperation with the Czech developer and supplier of passive radar systems ERA. The objective of this project was to connect both products in an optimal way. Radar and antenna mast work together as one unit.
During transport, the whole system is protected and invisibly stored in a military shelter. The Mobile Antenna Masts are manufactured in Salzgitter, Germany, since the beginning of 1974. Over 1900 masts are in successful operation worldwide for military missions like communication, observation, surveillance, as well as for disaster management.
State of the art technology permits maximum mobility on rough terrain. The great advantages of the new mast system are high payloads up to 1.2 tons with highest accuracy at the mast point, even at high wind speeds without using any kind of guy wires. The masts are fully automated, operable in intermediate heights and ready for any type of mission after a very short installation time.
The passive reconnaissance and surveillance system VERA by ERA can be perfectly complemented with the reliable SMAG antenna mast. The new compact mast unit is integrated into a standard 20’-container and ideally supplements the wide range of SMAG Mobile Antenna Masts
