Cobham Unveils Wideband Omni Antennas for Electronic Warfare Applications

Cobham Antenna Systems has expanded its range of wideband omnidirectional antennas for EW applications. Many new options are available with examples including:

  • OA-0.4-6.0V/2090: A wideband discone antenna covering 0.38 to 6.00 GHz capable of handling 100 W CW. This antenna is very rugged, low profile with a built in ground plane making it suitable for multiple applications, especially for ground to air coverage.
  • OA2-1.76-6.0V/2406: A wideband rugged antenna covering 1.76 to 6.00 GHz and capable of handling 50 W CW. This centre-fed antenna covers L, S and C bands within a single unit. The antenna does not require a ground-plane and peak gain is on the horizon across the frequency range.
  • OA-0.03-0.50V/2425: A wideband rugged vehicle spring-mounted whip antenna covering 30 to 512 MHz and capable of power handling of up to 200 W CW. This rugged, ground-plane dependant, antenna covers VHF and UHF frequencies within a single unit.

The full range of wideband omni antennas includes but is not limited to: manpack, body-worn, vehicle mount, high power, UAV and ground robot antennas. Cobham Antenna Systems also has complementary range of directional antennas covering 300 MHz to 27 GHz, which are used for a number of EW and surveillance applications.
