The ATR80M6G is a wide band, high gain, log periodic antenna that is uniquely suited for use in both traditional applications as well as in new compact chambers. The proprietary design utilizing a “bent element” approach provides a size reduction of approximately 60% without sacrificing key electrical performance such as gain and beamwidth and minimizes field loss resulting from “room loading”.
The HyCap series capacitors are composed of sintered tantalum anodes and ruthenium oxide coated cathodes operating in aqueous electrolyte. These capacitors are designed to operate reliably in extreme shock and vibration environments and for operation in environments of up to 200°C.
Antenna Magus is a new software tool to help engineers accelerate the antenna design and modelling process. It has a huge database of designed antennas which can be exported to CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® for further analysis and optimization.
Wireless InSite is site-specific radio propagation software for the analysis of wireless communication systems, wireless networks, sensors, radars, and other devices that transmit or receive radio waves

Performance Of A High Efficiency, Ka-Band, GaN-on-SiC MMIC With Low Compression
The high-power density and high breakdown voltage of GaN-on-SiC make it of particular interest for power amplifiers. This white paper details the design and performance of 28 V, 3-stange, Ka-band, Gan-on-SiC, power amplifier MMIC with high efficiency and low gain.
Keep Military Pilots Safe With Towed Decoys
Military pilots must be able to operate aircraft in very harsh environments. Towed decoys are one way to help them do that. From behind the aircraft, these products are designed to mimic a target, hence the term “towed decoy.” This diverts incoming ballistics away from the actual aircraft, and potentially increases pilot survivability rates – even in very hostile conditions.
Electronic Warfare, Drone Wars!
Conflict is inevitable, and as a result, military force is required if a peaceful solution is unattainable. One of the numerous outcomes of this course of action has been the evolution of battle strategy and weaponry, for the sole purpose of either efficiently defeating the enemy or defending against their attack. This article addresses the use of drones as a protective countermeasure in the future of military applications.
