Cobham Antenna Systems Introduces New Flat Panel Antenna
for Telemetry Application
15, 2009 -- Cobham Antenna Systems, Microwave Antennas, has designed a new directional antenna for use
within an information system for telemetry applications in the defence and surveillance industries. As the antenna
is to be incorporated into an existing multi-sector framework, it was designed to conform to existing technical
and environmental specifications.
The technical performance and physically robust construction of this
antenna ensures that it can be used with confidence in a range of applications, in order to provide operators with
greater flexibility when designing network systems. It may also be used in industries where data is commercially
Model FPA13-2.2R/1533 is a small, flat panel antenna with directional beam pattern, 40° azimuth by 40°
Its frequency range is 2.2 to 2.35GHz and it has 13 dBi gain with right hand circular
polarization. Discreet and unobtrusive in appearance, its dimensions are 195 x163x12.6mm (7.6x6.4x0.5 inches).
