Challenger Communications services clients from around the world, and when our superior products were requested in Tasmania, we delivered the parts on time, and at a competitive cost.
We provided replacement parts to the University of Tasmania for a 12 meter antenna used in the VLBI project. VLBI, or very-long-baseline interferometry, is a type of astronomical interferometry that is used in radio astronomy. Using this technology, signals from an astronomical radio source are collected at multiple Earth-bound radio telescopes. Further detail: AuScope geodetic VLBI array.
The University of Tasmania has three 12 meter antennas, which were originally purchased from and installed by Patriot Antenna Systems; Challenger provides continuing support for customers of this organization. We provided large slew bearing, elevation break assembly and replacement pins.
