Cobham Antenna Systems provides antennas for both ends of the link between the control station and the Unmanned System, remote vehicle or UAV. The ground-based antenna usually provides the higher gain part of the link; it can be a medium- to high-gain omni, a 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 and more 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 the antennas at both ends of the Unmanned System link.
