Full Motion Antenna motors designing problem
I want to design a Full motion Antenna. But I want to start from the scratch.
Suppose I have a 1m parabolic Antenna and I want to install two motors (Elevation and Azimuth)
The motors should be DC. And I want to know how to calculate all the parameters required to move the antenna. For example how much power it would require, how much torque, how many output volts.
Lets say the Antenna would be used as a VSAT installed on a vehicle.
Kindly help me in getting started.
Thanks and Best regards

Thanks for your reply.
I am a satellite engineer basically but I do have some mechanical background. And this is my first time to work on motors. Initially I can keep a accuracy of about +/- 1 degrees.
I just want to know how can i theoretically design a motor for the required movement of the antenna.
Thanks and Best Regards
