The ground to air Link16 band covers 960 to 1275MHz. Our extended performance, broadband omni antennas are used for terrestrial and naval applications, communicating with airborne platforms. Sector antennas are also available for Link16 applications.
With the bandwidth of the system and limited transmit power from the aircraft, longer ranges are achieved by providing higher gain on the ground for receive bands.
Included in our Link16 range is a 4dBi gain omni that provides 'intermediate' range, size and elevation beamwidth that can be used for both marine and ground applications.
All of our Link16 antennas are rugged, designed for extremes of weather and temperature and have been combat tested in conditions without affecting the performance or inhibiting mission requirements.
We have a high power 2dBi gain omni, model XPO2V-500-1300/034 that has been used for marine applications by the UK Navy and a broadband dipole, EVD2-90-1215/004 that has nominal 0dBi gain and moderate power for short range applications.
Antennas in this band can be used for:
