Cobham Antenna Systems provide antennas for both ends of the link between control station and Unmanned System, remote vehicle or UAV. The ground based antenna usually provides the higher gain part of the link and can be a medium to high gain omni, medium gain sector or a high gain directional antenna.
A directional antenna is likely to require a two-axis steering system which may be expensive to implement. A less complex but compact multi-sector antenna array can provide intermediate range coverage for communicating with an Unmanned System. This type of arrangement can be used for quick deployment, tactical applications.
We also have a range of Unmanned System antennas available. In order to achieve optimum results we would need to provide antennas at both end of the Unmanned System link.
