Antenna Division

 

 

During the summer of 1961, "the first Rohr-built antenna was erected in Alaska - a 60-foot-diameter instrument" (Rohr Corporation 1966 Annual Report, p. 16).

According to the Rohr Corporation 1964 Annual Report, work on the 210-foot diameter Advanced Antenna System space tracking antenna for NASA and JPL was proceeding on schedule to be installed at Goldstone, California. Completion was scheduled for November of 1965 (p. 3, 8).


"Rohr designed, fabricated and installed the antenna at the Goldstone Deep Space Station in Barstow in 1966" (Rohr Magazine, Fall 1969, p. 18). The Antenna Division completed the "colossus" of Free World antennas for NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The 210-foot diameter tracking and communications antenna was "considered the the most precise instrument of it's kind - extending the range of NASA's Deep Space Instrumentation Facility to the edge of our solar system." The Antenna Division has also "built a number of ground station antennas" (Rohr Corporation 1966 Annual Report, p. 2).

The Antenna Division "enhanced its position through extensive participation in the communications satellite program in addition to its well-established role as a producer of antenna structures for spacecraft communications, radio astronomy, ground communications and other missions." During 1967, antenna installations were completed in Washington, Hawaii and Spain. The market for small microwave relay antennas extended into Canada. (Rohr Corporation 1967 Annual Report, p. 3, 9).
