Ultra-Wideband Gooseneck Antennas Reduce Antenna Real Estate

Cobham has introduced two ultra-wideband gooseneck antennas - OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-ST/9625 and OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626. These Ultra-Wideband Antennas can be used to replace several narrow-band antennas reducing a system's 'antenna real estate' which is especially important on manned and un-manned vehicles. Since one antenna can fulfil all needs across multiple bands, Radio suppliers and users can also benefit by reducing inventory.

These antennas are ideal for use on Ground Robots, Unmanned Vehicles, Manpacks, Broadcast Cameras and Vehicles. Their wideband nature of these antennas allows users to future proof their systems and give increased flexibility when using software defined radios.

The Gooseneck Antenna itself has been specified to be stiff enough to remain where it has been bent even under vibration, which is essential when being used on systems where shock and vibration may be present.

The OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-ST/9625 and OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626 each cover the frequency range from 2 to 6 GHz and offer gain increasing with frequency from 1 dBi to almost 5 dBi gain at the highest frequencies. The options have either a spinning TNC (9625) or spinning RPTNC (9626) connector.

Like their counter-parts in the 'Universal' spring mount range, the OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-ST/9625 and OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626 have been designed to withstand harsh environments. A rugged glass fibre radome and IP68 rated to 20m under water, means they are able to withstand heavy impacts as well as extreme weather conditions.

These ultra-wideband antennas are also be available in a range of options including spring mount and direct connector mount. Click here to learn more.
