RF MILITARY ELECTRONICS FEATURED DATASHEETS

80 MHz - 6 GHz, 5000 Watt Input Log-Periodic Antenna: ATR80M6G Datasheet

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”. 

HyCap Series Hybrid Capacitors Datasheet

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.

Product Overview: Antenna Magus

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.

Brochure: Wireless InSite

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

RF MILITARY ELECTRONICS FEATURED ARTICLES

  • 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.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Bird’s® ACM is the solution for monitoring your transmission/antenna systems.   The ACM works with any modulation, detects antenna and cable faults, and provides alarms for low or high power and high VSWR.  Models are available from 136 MHz to 2.4 GHz and include as standard a Push-To-Talk (PTT) input to avoid false alarm triggering when the transmitter (radio) is not keyed.   Now available with either a Serial or Ethernet interface.

The SAS-521-2 is a bilogical antenna designed to provide and inexpensive solution to wideband applications ranging from 25 MHz to 2 GHz in environments from shielded enclosures to the outdoors. Suitable for FCC, MIL-STD, VDE, TEMPEST and immunity testing, the SAS-521-2 provides consistent and reliable measurements. The antenna also eliminates the need for antenna switching and therefore makes this unique hybrid a versatile performer.

The dB-3774B is a pulsed microwave power module (MPM) operating in the 6 to 18 GHz frequency range. It provides 1 kW peak power at 5% maximum duty cycle and is designed for high-performance electronic warfare applications. A periodic permanent magnet (PPM)-focused, conduction-cooled mini traveling wave tube (TWT) is used for power amplification.

This multi-octave power amplifier is ideal for applications involving RF communication systems, broadband RF telemetry, test labs, and software defined radios.

Remcom's Rotman Lens Designer is a tool for the design, synthesis, and analysis of Rotman Lenses and their variants.

Design engineers are constantly trying to minimize space in creating smaller more efficient products.  Corry Micronics’ new Micro Spanner EMI Filter matches the smallest size chassis-mounted feedthrough the industry has ever seen.  The FT40 spanner bushing filter offers a miniature diameter of 0.071”and is the optimal form factor for designs that demand efficiency in a compact footprint.  Corry’s Micro Spanner is offered in a “C” filter configuration and provides capacitance from 10 pF to 5000 pF.
