AUTOMATIC PAN/TILT CONTROLLER FOR ANTENNA ALIGNMENT (English)
Abstract [en]

This report describes the design and construction of a prototype that automatically aims a microwave link towards a target. The link, that is located on a mobile aerial mast, is used by Saab Training Systems as a part of an infrastructure network. The report also discusses the development of a GUI that communicates with the control unit by Bluetooth.

The control unit, called Pan/Tilt-controller, controls the position of the link by stepping motors. One motor controls the azimuth angle and the other one controls the elevation angle.

By a GUI the operator enters the coordinates on its own position and the targets position. Hereafter a bearing is calculated and it will be sent up to the control unit.

The control unit will sense its own direction by a magnetic sensor that works as an electronic compass. The Pan/Tilt-controller will then rotate the link to reach the targets coordinates. Alternatively you can control the position of the link manually by the GUI.

The report also discusses the functionality of the sensors and tests have been conducted to determine the accuracy of the control unit. The Pan/Tilt-controller can rotate a link 360º around its own axis and also tilting the link ±90º. The Pan/Tilt-controller can direct a link towards a target with an accuracy of 5º -10º.
