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.

  • The Rebirth Of HF

    HF, or “high frequency” technology, usually refers to signals with frequencies in the 3 MHz to 30 MHz range, all though, many practical cases extend these frequencies as low as 1.5 MHz. One of the best-known applications of HF is worldwide or global communications. Government, military, and commercial broadcasters can reach listeners worldwide using HF frequencies. This paper explores the unique properties of HF that enable global communications.

  • Who’s Looking Out For Your Spectrum?

    As the number of participants in communication systems increases, so does the noise level. To be heard, you either increase your volume, request them to repeat themselves or wait for a quiet period.  These basic principles form the building blocks of the wireless world we find ourselves in.

  • Anokiwave: A True Growth Story And Standing Apart From The Noise

    The convergence of unprecedented demand for bandwidth and continuing advancements in the silicon industry are driving industry change to. An exciting market like mmWave brings many new entries – so how is Anokiwave differentiating ourselves in the market? 

FEATURED PRODUCTS

FEKO software is a comprehensive electromagnetic (EM) analysis software suite, building on state of the art computational EM (CEM) techniques to provide users with software that can solve a wide range of electromagnetic problems.

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 Model AR-50 is a portable, lightweight, fully automatic band-switching RF booster amplifier for multi-band VHF/UHF Tactical Radio equipment employing legacy, proprietary and emerging waveforms. The amplifier covers the frequency band of 30-512 MHz using six high speed auto switching filters to assure harmonic suppression and is SINCGARS, HAVEQUICK, and ECCM compatible.

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.

Qorvo offers the QPM2100 GaAs multi-chip module (MCM) ideally designed for S-band electronic warfare, communications, and radar applications in the 2.5 – 40 GHz frequency range. This device comprises a transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a low loss transmit path, and received path consisting of a low-noise amplifier, a digital attenuator, and a driver amplifier.
