Effective countermeasures for field operations are becoming mandatory as commercially available RF products continue to be used for IED triggers.
Denying use of the RF spectrum to the enemy is of critical importance. As RF sources and amplifiers are developed to cover wider bands at higher power, it is important that antennas are developed in parallel.
The antennas must cover all specified bands, peak gain must be on the horizon, and they must be small enough for use by foot soldiers and rugged enough for vehicle applications.
We have a portfolio of ultra wideband (UWB) omni antennas in the range 150MHz to 40GHz to cover all of the bands in which high power amplifiers operate.
Multistack omni arrangements have been developed as well as specific antennas with high gain for cellular band countermeasures.
Wideband omni antennas can be 'stacked' so that several antennas may be designed into a single housing, which provides a single mounting point on any vehicle.
New feed through technology allows multiple antennas to be co-located within the same housing.
A wide range of directional, ultra-wideband, high power, circular polarised and spiral antennas are available. This range is continually expanding with new developments undertaken to meet customers' deployment requirements.
