1. Efficiency and Reliability

At the core of the NX Series is its unwavering performance, driven by the sturdy base section diameter of 152mm.

The NX Series boasts a versatile design that seamlessly integrates into various defence vehicles. Whether it’s bracketed to the rear or mounted through the vehicle roof, models like the NX18, NX25, and NX30 can be effortlessly installed using the innovative sliding carriage system. This unique mechanism facilitates rearward sliding, followed by the tilting and clamping of the mast in a secure vertical position. Moreover, all masts in the NX Series are trailer mountable, ensuring adaptability in diverse deployment scenarios.


3. Superior Attachment Options

Specifically engineered to meet the diverse needs of the defence sector, the NX30 model features a top section diameter of 50mm, ideal for securely attaching antennas. For added versatility, the remaining NX Series masts offer a top spigot of 50mm diameter x 130mm long, providing reliable attachment options for various equipment and devices. This ensures seamless integration and robust support, enabling effective communication and surveillance capabilities.


4. Customisation for Tailored Solutions

Recognising that each defence operation is unique, the NX Series embraces a modular design approach. This allows for the provision of custom-sized masts, tailored to meet specific requirements.
