Antennas, Radio Telescopes & Mirrors

The DMS is a leading provider of measurement and analysis to the antenna, telescope and reflective mirror industries. No job is too big or small - our experience ranges from defining the surface of 30 cm reflectors to aligning and installing the  bearing runner on the 70 meter Deep Space Station (DSS-43) in Tidbinbilla, on one of the world’s largest telescopes.

Some of the tasks we can perform include:

  • Antenna Installation
  • Antenna Assembly
  • Panel Alignment
  • Feed Alignment
  • Sub Reflector Alignment
  • Runner Alignments
  • Bearing Alignments
  • Structural Monitoring
  • Antenna and mirror manufacture: tool, fixture and die measurement, inspection and certification
  • Shape analysis, including parabolic best fitting
  • Deformation analysis of panels and large structures
  • Transportation Checks.
