Radio Telescopes

MT Mechatronics has over 50 years experience in Radio Telescopes. The first telescope was built in 1959-1961 in Parkes Australia. Other highlights are the 100m telescope Effelsberg (near Bonn, Germany), the 30m millimeter wavelength telescope MRT (Pico Veleta, Spain), the 50m “Large Millimeter Radio Telescope” LMT/GTM (Cerro la Negra, Mexico), the 40m Radio Telescope (Yebes, Spain), the 64m Sardinia Radio Telescope SRT (San Basilio, Sardinia). The last radio telescopes are equipped with active surface for the use at millimeter or sub-millimeter wavelength, as well as latest-state-of-the art servo system including Flexible Body Control (FBC) features for highest pointing and tracking requirements.
