VSD, LLC, a provider of customized solutions to governments and corporations, introduces its new AL-7204-CONT4 “Antenna Control Unit Replacement Kit” that replaces the obsolete “antenna control unit” (ACU), and includes new “servo driver” and “inertial measurement” units, according to the company.
The AL-7204-CONT4 supports the AL-7204 Television Direct-to-Sailors (TV-DTS) system, according to VSD. In addition, the antenna control unit replacement system uses two of the obsolete ACU’s three existing control cables and can be installed easily by the ship’s crew, the company says.
“The release of this replacement kit is another example of how VSD stays abreast of advances and improvements in technology, ensuring continued customer satisfaction,” said Ted Rollins, program manager in VSD’s SATCOM division. “At VSD, quantifying success through our customers’ satisfaction is just one of the things that separates VSD from our competitors,” he added.
The TV-DTS system is a means by which satellite television is delivered to naval ships. It has been in widespread use since 1997.
