The '''Communotron 88-88''' is a deployable [[antenna]], and is the antenna with the smallest transmission interval and highest total throughput. The Communotron 88-88 is deployed during [[science]] data transmission and retracted when transmission is complete. It has no drag due to being a [[physicsless part]]{{Check version||1.0.2}}.

The Communotron 88-88 is a deployable antenna, and is the antenna with the smallest transmission interval and highest total throughput. The Communotron 88-88 is deployed during science data transmission and retracted when transmission is complete. It has no drag due to being a physicsless part[outdated].

Product description

The Communotron 88-88 directional antenna allows for far more reliable communication at longer ranges than previous models. This is thanks in part to its patented parabolic folding design, which our research team maintains was not inspired by an umbrella.
