R&D Technologies

MILITARY

R&D solutions can be used worldwide for defence and military applications. Our experience in the design of RF systems that we are able to supply solutions to the most complex RF problems. As well as providing a wide range of standard products, we regularly undertake bespoke RF development projects. Our in-house optimisation technique can build the most critical design parameters, and assure an optimal results. We believe that emerging technologies and new materials have increased the overall system complexity. Hence, the right design must be made to deliver vigorous state-of-the-art solutions.

GROUND TO AIR LINK

The ground-to-air Link16 band covers 960 to 1275MHz. In R&D, we ensure that system limitation imposed by extremes of weather and temperature, bandwidth specifics, and aircrafts' comparatively low transmit power, does not affect the performance. We can help on antenna designs for Link16 – Military inter-computer data exchange format of NATO ,MIDS – Multifunctional Information Distribution System ,JTIDS – Joint Tactical Information Distribution System , and JTRS – Joint Tactical Radio System.

UNMANNED SYSTEMS

Unmanned Systems provide many operational functions including airborne surveillance, video transmission, border patrol and tactical support. In all cases, uninterrupted communication to the control centre is vital.As the demand for Unmanned Systems increases, so does the need for a wider range of antennas, for payloads, data communications systems, command and control. Competing performance- and cost-criteria are an important consideration when selecting an antenna. As frequencies increase from L-band to Ku-band, to provide wider bandwidths for higher data rates, the selection of the right antenna becomes critical, for optimising system performance, battery-life and transmission range.

RADAR

The characteristics of antennas are critical to radar system performance, in order to resolve the target image with accuracy. In R&D we are able to provide efficient, reliable designs that meet our client's precise requirements. Bespoke development projects are regularly undertaken, in which we work with our customers to ensure the performance of their antennas is optimised.

c BAND 4.4 TO 5.0 GHZ

For defence and security purposes, providing high data rates for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint applications. The restrictive use of this band ensures a greater level of security. Different designed antenna can be presented according to the customer particular requirements.

Electronic Warfare (EW)

Effective countermeasures for field operations are becoming mandatory, as commercially available RF products continue to be used for IED triggers. Denying enemy operators their use of the RF spectrum is of critical importance. As RF sources and amplifiers are developed to cover wider bands at higher power, it is important that antennas are developed similarly, in parallel. Such antennas must cover all specified bands; peak gain must be on the horizon, and they must be small enough for use by foot soldiers and rugged enough for vehicle applications.
