Haigh-Farr Features New Broadband Button Antenna At SOFIC 2014


Haigh-Farr, a Business Unit within the Vitec Group and a world leader in the simulation, design, manufacture and test of integrated antennas, highlights a new Broadband Button Antenna (Model 13200)at its virtual booth (V103) at this year's Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC). SOFIC provides a forum for military, government, academia, and industry stakeholders to network and discuss current and future challenges and how to best support our special operations forces.

This new offering is the latest addition to Haigh-Farr's complete line of Broadband Button and Blade Antennas. Model 13200 provides the omnidirectional coverage of a stub antenna in a rugged package, working over the 1.4 to 7.0 GHz frequency range. It is designed using the same construction as Haigh-Farr's full line of Button Antennas, manufactured for applications where size and weight are critical. Haigh-Farr's Buttons utilize proven materials and methods of construction to provide a solid package requiring only one "D" hole installed in the vehicle for mounting. The use of a high-impact, high-temperature radome offers superb protection, with excellent properties in environments containing moisture and contaminants.

"Haigh-Farr looks forward to highlighting its newest button antenna at this year's SOFIC show," says David Farr, CEO of Haigh-Farr. "We are excited to be a part of such esteemed, industry-leading event and look forward to digitally showcasing our complete range of products to attendees and the industry as a whole."

If one of its standard antennas does not meet a customer's exact specifications, Haigh-Farr has the experience and modeling capability to customize a solution. The company can generate adaptations of existing designs with a very short amount of lead time. For more information on custom solutions, please reach out to Haigh-Farr directly.
