Expecting the Unexpected: High Power Transmit Antennas on Vehicles

Many of the Alaris Antenna products are used in vehicle-based high power transmit systems, a typical application being the protection of convoys or VIP transport vehicles against remotely triggered improvised explosive devices (IED)s.

Unfortunately, antennas tend to be heavily influenced by their environment, and vehicles are especially antenna-unfriendly installation locations. Let’s discuss a couple of issues that a Systems Engineer might unexpectedly stumble into when placing antennas on a vehicle.
