Newmarket, United Kingdom: Cobham Antenna Systems, a market-leading antenna manufacturer, draws on
its vast range of resources to provide antenna solutions for systems designed to compromise the unlawful
use of drones. A selection of these antennas will be on display on the Cobham Booth, #1631, at AUVSI's
XPONENTIAL 2017, 8-11 May, Dallas, USA.
The range consists of four main types of antenna which can be combined or configured in arrays for
a multitude of scenarios. The antenna types are: Wideband Omni-Directional; Directional Helix, Directional
Flat Panel; High Power Ultra-Wideband Directional. The antenna combinations will depend on the method
of countering Drones, from straight forward jamming, to spoofing and direction finding. Cobham can help
to offer the optimum solution.
Wideband Omni-Directional antennas can be used for general surveillance applications as well as high
power jamming. Multiple wideband omnis can be phase or amplitude matched for use in Direction-Finding
Directional Helix antennas provide high gain and efficiency while reducing interference with nearby
systems. Two bands can be contained within one unit and circular polarisation allows for the monitoring
or countering of any threat.
Directional Flat Panel antennas provide high gain in a small unit size especially for higher frequencies.
They can be used for monitoring or signal denial and are available in linear or circular polarisations
depending on application.
High Power Ultra-Wideband Directional antennas can cover multiple bands within a single unit providing
up to 10dBi gain. High power (100W) and circular polarisation provides a powerful combinations of features.
