There will always be emerging threats in the defense sector that require the innovation that millimeter-wave technology offers. Here’s a helpful Q&A primer on millimeter-wave products – including what specialized contract manufacturing and environmental testing can bring to the table.

Which defense applications need millimeter-wave frequency products?

Radar, electronic warfare and countermeasures, airborne datalink, and satellite communications markets are especially in need of millimeter-wave products. Why? Because next-gen tactical networks and electronic warfare are transitioning to higher frequency spectrums to defend against newly discovered threats. And with innovations like 5G, 6G and Satcom backhaul on the rise, connectivity, bandwidth and speed are hugely important in the commercial and defense sector.

What are the advantages/challenges of millimeter-wave technology?

Some advantages of millimeter-wave technology include much higher bandwidth, increased connectivity with many more channels, and faster exchange of data during tactical communication. Some challenges of millimeter-wave technology include an escalation in costs and complexity, as well as operational environmental challenges. Fortunately, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
