In order to meet the demand for single-radome MIMO antennas for medium range aircraft performing ISR missions, we've released a pair of new antennas built off our existing, proven MIMO antenna technology with design improvements specifically for these new mission requirements.
Our engineering team has added a new flange mount base, in addition to reinforcing the antennas for the higher altitude and airspeed achieved by medium range military turboprop aircraft that are commonly used for surveillance, patrol, search and rescue, and transport operations.
Part # 1001-236 is our first Ultra-Flex antenna offering covering the 2.5 - 2.7 GHz band. This antenna features an elevation beamwidth of 69 - 73 degrees and peak gain of 2 dBi.
All of Southwest Antennas' Ultra-Flex omni antennas feature our sealed Ultra-Flex spring base that prevents rain, dust, dirt, mud, or other substances from fouling the spring. The spring also helps prevent damage to mated RF connectors, and makes the antenna ideal for use on tactical radio systems, unmanned systems, and more.
Southwest Antennas is monitoring the international situation in regard to the spread of COVID-19 and we are taking extra precautions to protect the health and safety of our staff and customers, and to further ensure that Southwest Antennas can stay open for operation during this time while continuing to deliver products as expected.
Southwest Antennas has released two new omni-directional antennas for use in UHF and ISM band applications. With options for either a Ultra-Flex sealed spring base or flexible gooseneck base, making these antennas ideal for tactical radio systems, MIMO & MANET radio systems, handheld video receivers, unmanned robotics platforms, and other applications.
Southwest Antennas is honored to be included on the inaugural "Inc. 5000 California Series" list at #139, as one of the fastest growing privately-held companies in the state.
We're proud to design and build our products in California as part of the growing cluster of defense-focused companies in the San Diego RF and Microwave community. A big thank you to our employees, customers, and partners who we are lucky enough to work with and support our continued growth.
