Successful project delivery for Airbus
Barum & Dewar is pleased to confirm successful completion of another project for long-term client Airbus at their Portsmouth base. Airbus required a suitable case for transporting their Waveguide Lens Antennas (WGLA) which weigh approximately 1200kg. The B&D team recommended our Delta style container for this specific requirement, fitted with an interface plate with wire mounts to minimise shock and vibration inputs during transportation. Additionally, a shallow base allows ease of access and loading for the hardware, while a multi-section lid can be removed in areas where there are height restrictions. The lid can also be removed manually, an added bonus for when mechanical lifting facilities are limited.
The main benefit of using the WGLA compared to a conventional dish is its ability to multi-satellite capture, which is beneficial from a cost perspective. Additionally, the WGLA is not impacted by other issues typically associated with antennas such as signal blocking and overheating.
Mark Speck, Regional Sales Manager, commented, “Barum & Dewar is proud to work with Airbus, a leader in the Defence & Space sector, supporting with protective packaging for their latest technical innovations. Our team have extensive knowledge of the Space sector and its complex challenges and are once again delighted to support the Airbus team on their protective packaging requirements.”
