Cobham Introduces Two Ultra-Wideband Gooseneck Antennas

Designed for use on ground robots, unmanned vehicles, manpacks, broadcast cameras and vehicles, the wideband nature of these antennas allows users to future proof their systems and give increased flexibility when using software defined radios.

These antennas can be used to replace several narrow-band antennas, reducing a system’s ‘antenna real estate’ that 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.

The Gooseneck 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.

OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-ST/9625 and OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626 each cover the frequency range 2.00GHz to 6.00GHz and offer gain increasing with frequency from 1dBi to almost 5dBi gain in the highest frequencies. The options have either a spinning TNC (9625) or spinning RPTNC (9626) connector.

Similar to 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 are designed to withstand adverse environments. A rugged glass fibre radome and IP68 rated to 20m under water means they are able to withstand heavy impacts and extreme weather conditions.

These ultra-wideband antennas will also be available in a range of options, including spring mount and direct connector mount, so please contact us to discuss options.
