Cobham Antenna Systems Introduces New Flat Panel Antenna for Telemetry
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 valuable.
Model FPA13-2.2R/1533 is
a small, flat panel antenna with directional beam pattern, 40° azimuth
by 40° elevation.
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
