Antennas designed for use with MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) and MANET (mobile ad hoc network) mesh radio networks. Each MIMO antenna housing contains several antenna elements, all of which are used to transmit and receive simultaneously to improve link speed and capacity through multipath propagation.
Often the individual antenna elements are polarized opposite of each other. These systems are particularly useful in urban environments.
Southwest Antennas is an industry leader in the design of rugged antennas and radio frequency (RF) accessory products for modern warfighters.
The company focusses on providing solutions across a wide range of radio systems, including dismounted tactical radio, vehicle-based, base stations and unmanned vehicles for defence industry applications.
