Product Announcement from API Technologies Corp - Spectrum Control & Sensors
Fairview, PA - April 29, 2010 - Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products announces a new high performance antenna with a 3dB beam width horizon to 55° elevation with less than 3dB azimuth variation. With characteristics comparable to a 5/8 whip antenna, the Low Observable antenna is perfect for applications that desire a more discreet and compact antenna still able to achieve exceptional low angle radiation. Additionally, this linear antenna achieves a peak gain of -3dBil, while its rugged construction makes it suitable for extreme environments.
Available in sizes ranging from a diameter of 2.5" at ~915MHz to 11" at
150MHz with a 5/8" - 1.5" thickness, the Low Observable antenna has a scalable
frequency of 136 to +915MHz. The Low Observable antenna is completely ground
plane independent, and is excellent for applications such as VHF and UHF voice
data and VHF/UHF LEO satellite systems, unmanned aerial and ground vehicles,
police, fire and municipal systems, first responders, and more. The antenna is
built to withstand temperatures ranging from -25ºC to +85ºC.
The Low Observable antenna joins a family of antennas and assemblies offered by Spectrum. As the industry's only true vertically integrated antenna solutions and systems provider, Spectrum is able to develop and produce an antenna from concept through manufacturing, saving time and money. From aperture, spiral and planar antennas to switched arrays and EBA's, Spectrum offers high efficiency, high gain antennas.
