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.

Southwest Antennas has just added a new horizontally polarized antenna option to our line of small form factor directional antennas.

Designed for L and S-band applications, Part # 1004-034 features an operational frequency range of 1.7 - 2.5 GHz and 9.8 dBi of peak gain.

We're pleased to announce that for a second year in a row Southwest Antennas has made the Inc. 5000 Regionals list of fastest growing privately owned companies in California, at number 187!

A big shout out to all of our employees, customers, and partners who make what we do possible. Thank you!

Southwest Antennas has released a new rugged omni-directional antenna for S and C-Band communication.

Part # 1001-254 features frequency band coverage for both 2.1 - 2.5 GHz and 4.4 - 5.9 GHz with a peak gain of 2.6 dBi, offering coverage for many popular licensed bands used by Federal Law Enforcement, domestic and international / NATO military users, and broadcast video engineers, in addition to ISM and unlicensed band use.

Southwest Antennas Releases New Rugged GPS Active L1/L2 Patch Antenna for GNSS Applications

Proprietary stacked patch design combines high-performance antenna components with a low-profile waterproof radome and integrated magnetic mount to handle a wide range of operational scenarios for military and civilian GNSS users

We're expanding our line of dual-band antenna solutions with two new S and C-band omni-directional antennas.

Southwest Antennas has released three new rugged dual-band antenna products for 414 - 460 MHz / 895 - 935 MHz UHF-band applications.

Owing to their dual-band design, these antennas are ideal for multi-band tactical radio systems, allowing operators to utilize one or both frequency bands without needing to switch out antennas. The dual-band frequency coverage also make these antennas ideal for anti-jamming / automated interference avoidance systems.

We've released two new 4G LTE omni-directional antennas designed for embedded applications. For applications where antennas must be hidden from view for operational security to to improve environmental ruggedness in harsh conditions, these antennas can be easily integrated into other products, devices, or vehicles.

Southwest Antennas is incredibly proud to announce that we have ranked # 2,114 on the 2020 Inc. Magazine 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America. This is the second year in a row that Southwest Antennas has earned this honor, and a significant improvement over our placement on the list last year.

We're pleased to announce the release of four new dual-band sector antennas designed for use with multi-port MIMO and MANET radio networks.

The innovative dual-band sector antenna design allows these antennas to operate across two distinct frequency bands, enabling dual-band transmit and receive capabilities when paired with radio systems capable of multi-band operation.
