Airborne Broadband Omni-Directional Antennas

Airborne Broadband Omni-Directional Antennas

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.

Broadband Dual Polarized Log Periodic Antennas

Broadband Dual Polarized Log Periodic Antennas

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.

Broadband Linearly Polarized Log Periodic Antennas

Broadband Linearly Polarized Log Periodic Antennas

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. This series of antennas is available in several different models that cover a spectral range of 20 MHz to 26.5 GHz.

Broadband Omni-Directional Slant Linear Biconical Antennas

Broadband Omni-Directional Slant Linear Biconical Antennas

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.

Planar Cavity-Backed Spiral Antennas

Planar Cavity-Backed Spiral Antennas

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.

Telemetry, MDI and Tracking Beacon Antennas

Telemetry, MDI and Tracking Beacon Antennas

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.   

Airborne Instrumentation Antennas

Airborne Instrumentation Antennas

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.

Positioners/Controllers - Capabilities

Positioners/Controllers - Capabilities

Smiths Interconnect's portfolio of positioners and controllers featuring TECOM technology provide proven turn-key solutions for rugged environments. Selected and deployed by hundreds of domestic and international defense, government and commercial customers, Smiths core capability in positioners not only supports mission-critical programs, but brings front-line visibility to tactical command centers.

Scalar Feed Horns (SFH)

Scalar Feed Horns (SFH)

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.
