Omni-Directional Antennas for RF Congested Environments
Enhance your radio's operational capabilities in RF congested environments and help mitigate co-site interference, receiver desense, and other related system-level issues with our line of omni-directional antennas with integrated RF filters.
Southwest Antennas offers a number of mounting solutions for different configurations and use case scenarios. Here are a few examples of how our products can be used to rapidly mount and deploy antennas.
Southwest Antennas has engineered a full line of directional sector antennas designed for tactical mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) and multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) mesh radio systems. These antennas support high bandwidth networking for handheld radios, ground and airborne vehicles and security sensor systems. They can easily be deployed as part of a temporary communications network or installed as long-term infrastructure, and they are adaptable as situational needs change.
Application Note: Upgrading Antennas to Improve Radio Performance
Utilizing high quality antennas is a cost effective way to upgrade the performance of an existing radio systems for better RF link margin and higher data/video throughput across many types of terrain and operating conditions.
ADS-B is an acronym for Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast, a new real-time situational awareness and surveillance program which is part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen air traffic control modernization mandate. ADS-B equipment will be used by air traffic controllers and aircraft pilots to better track active aircraft in US airspace and improve safety as more aircraft use existing routes.
