Company’s antennas will be used to upgrade current and future radio systems for continued deployment and new applications

San Diego, September 14, 2021 - Southwest Antennas, an industry leader in rugged RF / Microwave antenna and accessory products, today announced that they have been awarded an Indefinite Quantity Indefinite Delivery (IDIQ) contract from a major US Federal Law Enforcement agency, with a $4.9 million award ceiling over the next five years.

Southwest Antennas Part # 1001-265 is designed to cover 1.98 - 2.7 GHz and offers 2 dBi of peak gain.

Measuring at less than five inches in length, the small form factor, wideband omni-directional antenna is well suited for applications where larger antennas cannot be deployed.

The antenna's small size allow for deployment on:

Southwest Antennas has released a new dual-band directional MIMO sector antenna, for use with 2 or 3 port radio systems.

Southwest Antennas Part # 1055-404 is a three port panel antenna designed for use with 3X3 MIMO / MANET radio systems and features dual-band operation for both 1.35 - 1.9 GHz & 1.7 - 2.5 GHz, covering many popular military, federal law enforcement, and broadcast bands.

For the third year in a row we’re pleased to announce that Southwest Antennas has earned a spot on the Inc. 5000 list of fasting growing privately held companies in America at No. 3,896.

This year we’d like to highlight and thank our hard-working staff who helped sustain our operations through COVID and global supply chain disruptions. We were able to rapidly shift operations around enhanced safety protocols and are proud to have remained open throughout the pandemic in support of our critical defense and law enforcement customers.

Southwest Antennas has released a new 330 - 360 MHz monopole antenna for VHF-band commuication.

Part # 1000-046 features a BNC(m) RF connector, and offers 330 - 360 MHz band coverage with 2 dBi of peak gain, as long as the antenna is connected to a ground plane of at least 5.3" L x 2.2" W x 1.15" D.

Southwest Antennas has released a new small form factor concealment antenna for 1.35 - 1.40 GHz applications, featuring 2 dBi of gain and 54 inches of integrated low-loss RF cable.

Part # 1066-094 is designed to be integrated into systems such as unmanned vehicles, or concealed within other products for covert surveillance applications. This antenna's small size makes it ideal for meeting SWaP requirements, and it can be tuned by Southwest Antennas to optimize performance for specific applications.

Southwest Antennas has introduced a new broadband dipole antenna, covering major federal, military, and ISM bands from 1.35 - 2.5 GHz in a single compact product.

Part # 1001-342 offers excellent continuous electrical performance across its entire operational band, making this antenna ideal for multi-band applications or replacing several antennas with a single product, reducing kit complexity, cost, and weight.

Southwest Antennas part # 1066-087 is a new concealment antenna that offers 4.4 - 5.3 GHz frequency band coverage and features a horizontally polarized antenna element.
Designed with concealment or surveillance applications in mind, this antenna has been made to resemble a standard GPS "puck" style antenna, but actually contains a C-band antenna element.

Southwest Antennas has just released Part # 1001-256, a rugged, small form factor omni-directional antenna that offers 4.4 - 5.9 GHz frequency coverage with 3.2 dBi of peak gain.

Southwest Antennas' Director of Engineering Chris Jones was recently interviewed as part of Unmanned Systems Technology magazine's research for their latest feature on antennas for unmanned systems and ground control stations. This article covers the latest trends in antenna design and communication for unmanned systems, and we were pleased to help provide background information and research for this article.
