Your opinion is very important to determine and analyze the possible system of Solar conversion in open currency markets and its ratio to the main fully convertible currencies chosen by Asgardians for this purpose.


W.B. Walton Enterprises Prevents Snow and Ice Buildup on Satellite Earth Station Antennas

W.B. Walton Enterprises develops and builds a line of equipment that stops ice and snow from accumulating on satellite earth station antennas and is the leading satellite company for offering quality products, which protect earth stations during poor weather conditions.

Asgardia is always interested in researching and promoting startup companies that could help them further their goal of setting up habitable platforms in low-Earth orbit and ensuring the peaceful use of space.

De-icing products produced by W.B. Walton Enterprises include a behind the antenna heated system for antennas ranging from 3.7 to 32 meters in size

More recently, they have manufactured a line of de-icing products dubbed the Snow Shield specifically for antennas ranging from 0.6 to 6.3 meters in size. This product uses a PTFE Coated Fabric stretched over the satellite antenna, with a system that can automatically heat up and comes with remote activation and monitoring.

W.B. Walton Enterprises has a strong track record of worldwide customer support experience and customer-service orientation. The company is committed to making the highest quality products backed by superior customer service and support. They also offer turnkey integration, installation, maintenance and tech support.

All W.B. Walton products, including their original, patented, and patent-pending technologies are designed and manufactured in the United States of America.

Products Overview

Their line of de-Ice products includes Passive and Heated systems made for multiple applications, as well as antenna systems that range from small to large.
De-Ice System

Their original de-icing system features a behind the antenna plenum (enclosure) which is heated with hot air from either liquid propane, natural gas or electric heating units. These systems are made for antennas that range in size from 3.7-meter to 32-meters in diameter.

Ice Quake System

The Ice Quake system (U.S. patent) is the ultimate power-efficient deicer, which improves the reliability of the Snow Shield systems by a factor of 185 percent.

The Ice Quake System also serves as a Rain Shield to prevent water from sheeting on the antenna reflective surface.
• This system can save up to 100 x the cost of electricity when compared to conventional systems
• This system does not require a high power conduit, trenching, or switchgear costs
• This model features automatic moisture and temperature monitoring in addition to a control system

Snow Shield

Snow shield is designed to prevent snow and ice from building up on satellite dishes

The Snow Shield Cover is made for antennas that range in size from 0.6 meters to 6.3-meters in diameter. The Snow Shield is made up of a PTFE coated material, which is essentially invisible to RF, stretched over the satellite antenna. The Snow Shield can be used as a passive, Ice Quake, or heat system that can be added for extra protection.

• This model slicks off snow is hydrophobic and is used to stop snow and ice buildup
• There is also an option for a Passive Snow Shield cover which can be combined with a heater – to become an Ice Quake
• Its design seals in hot air, which improves heater performance

Rain Quake

Due to the Rain Fade feature, this product reduces signal loss. It also minimizes lost data by 20X or more – compared to antennas without protection

This product also stops water from sheeting on the antenna surface – causing Ka-Band or Ku-Band rain fade – from VSATs to large antennas.

Solar Cover

Another product is the Solar Cover system, which is added to keep the temperature within the cavity the same as the outside temperature. This helps to lessen the movement of the reflective surface during the daytime.

Advantages to all of the above products include:

• Turnkey integration, installation, maintenance and tech support.
• Superior customer service.
• Proudly designed and manufactured in the USA.
