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.
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.
Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce our new line of stand-alone RF filter modules that can be quickly integrated into existing radio systems or added to new systems during planning and deployment.
With the increasing number of radios operating in close proximity to each other and the proliferation of communications equipment in urban and suburban environments, the addition of RF filtering to a system can help eliminate out-of-band interference that degrades radio performance.
Southwest Antennas has released a new compact omni-directional antenna for DOD and military radio systems, such as handheld or body-worn radio systems, or unmanned systems such as ground robots and aerial vehicles.
Part # 1001-218 covers the 1.35 - 1.4 GHz frequency band, and offers a peak gain of 2.15 dBi. The antenna can handle 50W of input transmit power.
