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.
Our team of engineers and designers have been hard at work this year bringing innovative new antenna designs to market for a wide variety of customers and applications. We thought it would be the perfect opportunity to revisit these and highlight some of our most exciting product releases of 2016.
