Southwest Antennas manufactures rugged antenna solutions for domestic and international military users who utilize the Link 16 tactical data link network. These antennas are designed specifically for the 969 - 1,206 MHz Link 16 band.

Our current Link 16 product portfolio includes several omni-directional antennas in addition to a high-gain, circularly polarized sector antenna for targeted, directional coverage.

Southwest Antennas is honored to be named one of 20 "Most Promising Homeland Security Solution Providers - 2019" in the December issue of CIO Review Magazine, and proud to be included among some other very recognizable industry names.

Below is a reprint of the article about Southwest Antennas that was originally published in CIO Review's December 2019 issue.

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.
