Southwest Antennas has introduced a new line of broadband dipole antennas, covering major federal, military, and ISM bands from 1.35 - 2.5 GHz in a single compact product.
Excellent continuous electrical performance across the antenna's entire operational frequency make these antennas ideal for multi-band applications or replacing several antennas with a single product, reducing kit complexity, cost, and weight.
Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce our newly updated line of rugged cloverleaf omni-directional antennas. These antennas are available in both left hand and right hand circular polarization, which is ideal for air-to-ground RF links or use in multi-antenna configurations, where multiple antennas of opposite polarization are used to increase isolation between co-located antennas.
July 20th 2019 marks 82 years since the death of Guglielmo Marconi (25 April 1874 - 20 July 1937), one of the pioneering inventors and scientists that helped launch the field of modern radio communication.
Marconi built upon the radio transmission experiments of earlier scientist and inventors of the 1800s, such as Heinrick Hertz, Edouard Branly, Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge, and James Clerk Maxwell.
Southwest Antennas offers several rugged antenna options for use with the Link 16 tactical data link network from 969 - 1,206 MHz.
Link 16 is a military-use tactical data link network that enables the US and allied forces to share near real-time tactical information and increase battlefield situational awareness between groups in theater, including location information, text messages, pictures, voice, and data.
Ideal for vehicle-mounted application, Southwest Antennas has released a new S-Band antenna with a sealed spring and flange mount base.
Part # 1087-079 features an operational frequency range from 2.2 - 2.5 GHz, and a peak gain of 6 dBi. The weather resistant sealed spring that allows the antenna's radome to bend and flex with impact and return to its vertical operating position, helping to reduce risk of damage to the mated RF connector.
The latest issue of Unmanned Systems Technology magazine has a feature article on ground control systems which profiles one of our multi-port MIMO / MANET sector antennas (Part # 1055-330) paired with Avwatch's Mobile Tracking System.
This general education whitepaper covers the basics of RF connectors that are commonly used in the antenna industry, including pros and cons for different applications why using high-quality RF connectors is paramount to antenna performance and ultimately the performance of the entire RF system.
