IES performs maintenance and overhaul of pylons, for fixed and rotating (Log Periodic) HF/VHF/UHF antennas.
Maintenance of parabolic antennas and their semi-rigid coax supply lines and waveguides (Scientific Atlanta).
Overhaul of the shelters of the NATO MEWSG NewVan fleet since 2001.
Our company has installed TLC equipment, systems, antennas, radio links, multiplexes, etc. Other activities are installations including buildings, setting up of laboratories with supply and preparation of workbenches for electronic working, accordingly to the present rules.
IES performs laying and wiring of cables (both shielded and unshielded, coax, optical fiber, etc.) in small, medium and large sites with underground crossing.
In December 2005 IES made the installation of 10KW HF SSB equipment and movement of 1KW HF SSB equipment at a TX station of Italian Navy, including the realization of rooms with raised flooring and stepped cable ducts.
Our personnel have gained a great experience in the installation field, both in the national territory and abroad.
We also own a specific technical and practical skill in handling materials in very high frequencies installations, such as: cellflex cables, flexible and rigid waveguides, multi-shielded cables, coax and signal connectors; a skill gained after having worked under the guide of expert American technicians of Scientific Atlanta, with which our company has collaborated in the realization and setting up of medium and large satellite installations at Telespazio Fucino, Cairo, Matera and Cerveteri.
We are also able to realize operating consoles, cabled racks and interconnecting cables between internal and external units of the shelters used by armed forces, taking care of the ergonomic and safety aspects for the personnel employed and assuring the maximum accessibility to the units of the system.
Furthermore IES gained a great experience in assembling shielded chambers of small, medium and large size, complete of every needed component (filtering system, supplying and illumination plants, anechoic system, paneling, flooring, etcÖ).
IES has also a long experience in the realization, on behalf of a third party, of high power transmitting devices (10 kW) in HF band, and zero-hour revision of 7 kW apparatus at a frequency of 7 GHz.
A separate chapter, which we are particularly proud of, it is our participation at the 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th CNR (Italian National Research Council) expedition in Antarctica.
IES has been chosen by CNR as a supplier for technical assistance services to the telecommunications system, operating at the Italian bases in Antarctica.Two technicians of ours took part to the expedition, after attending a two-week long surviving course on Monte Bianco. Over the five months of the mission, our technicians maintained all the transmitting systems issued to Italian bases, watching over their correct working and ensuring the connection between Italian bases and all the other international ones set in Antarctica territory and also with the rest of world; operating in environmental and working conditions beyond any standard.
The Italian communications equipment, in Antarctica, consisted of 10 kW HF apparatus, antennas and repeaters operating in V/UHF and satellite frequencies; a telephone exchange, field apparatus and NDB and TACAN systems. The equipment came from several national and from abroad producers and was associated to different kind of antennas. The right maintenance and services were provided to all the apparatus and antennas.
