Smiths Interconnect's high performance omni-directional Type 201564-3 antennas featuring TECOM technology are specifically designed for reduced form factor and highly ruggedized for mission critical airborne applications.
These antennas featuring TECOM technology set the industry standard with an average gain of 7.5 dBi and are ideally suited for direction finding and surveillance applications. Each antenna has two independent planar, log periodic structures positioned at quadrature on a common axis, each having its own feed system. This series of antennas is available in several different models that cover a spectral range of 20 MHz to 26.5 GHz.

This family of broadband, omni-directional biconical antennas featuring TECOM technology is slant linear polarized and therefore responsive to vertical, horizontal, as well as right and left hand circularly polarized signals. These antennas are radome enclosed, foam filled and hermetically sealed. Its unique design allows them to be stacked on top of one another. Performance frequencies range from 0.5 up to 40 GHz depending on the specific configuration.
The planar cavity-backed spirals antennas featuring TECOM technology are circularly polarized, either RHCP or LHCP and have excellent repeatability across frequently and amplitude. These antennas are offered in several configuration to meet your specific system needs in the 1.0 - 18.0 GHz spectrum.
These antennas featuring TECOM technology are constructed of high performance materials that optimize both environmental and electrical performance. Each antenna come standard with right-hand circular (left-hand is available upon request) and can be combined into arrays for specific pattern coverage from 2.20 to 9.5 GHz.
This series of aerodynamic antennas featuring TECOM technology are offered in the 225 MHz - 9.5 GHz frequency range and are available in low profile and blade configurations. These antennas are designed to work independently or in arrays of two, three, or more for specific pattern coverage.
MMA-RX utilizes a three aperture design providing Quad band Data receive bandwidth in a single unit. The system features upgraded high efficiency apertures providing short to medium range link capability. The desired aperture is user selectable On-The-Fly through a flexible software interface, providing L/S, or C, or Ku Band capability within 3 seconds.
Tactical Datalink Communications for Fixed Ground and On-the-Move Applications. The GDT antenna assembly consists of a positioner, controller, and parabolic feed assemblies that provide the critical command, control, and sensor connectivity of the TUAV to the ground control station.
Ground Data Terminal, TCDL antenna system operates from 14.4 – 15.35 GHz in Ku-Band. The antenna system is currently fielded, operationally proven and qualified for TUAV’s. The antenna system includes a 4-foot reflector, Ku-Band feed, antenna positioner with integrated servo and control systems electronics, and tripod assembly. Transit cases can also be supplied to protect these assemblies while in transit to the operations site
Smith Interconnect’s microprocessor-based Antenna Control Unit (ACU) is designed to provide cost-effective control of the antenna positioner assembly. The integrated controller can operate over an RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet or Fiber Optic interface.
Smiths core capability in positioners not only supports mission-critical programs, but brings front-line visibility to tactical command centers.
Standard designs cover 26 to 325 GHz, with approximately 25º beamwidth. Custom horns are available and can provide half-power (-3 dB) beamwidths from 60º to below 10º for narrow beamwidth feeds or horn-reflector antenna combinations. Multiple polarization options are available, as are full waveguide band models with single linear polarization.
Smiths Interconnect is a leading provider of technically differentiated electronic components, subsystems, microwave and radio frequency products that connect, protect and control critical applications in the commercial aviation, defense, space, medical, rail, semiconductor test, wireless telecommunications, and industrial markets.
