The ARA-2245 antenna is a single-band, omni- directional, vehicular communications antenna. The antenna has been tuned for performance from 225MHz to 450MHz. The gain has been tuned for -10° to 10° in elevation with azimuthal variations ±1 dB. Broadband, low SWR ensures no power reduction in mobile or vehicular amplifiers.
This antenna is designed to be fully qualified at an environmental laboratory. The rugged, TRL-6 (Technology Readiness Level) antenna can be coated with a variety of materials including CARC Green/Tan or Dead Flat Black paint.
The ARA-2245 is a ground-plane independent antenna with an aluminum mount for excellent electrical bonding to a standard vehicular NATO mount. The radome offers high voltage isolation of greater than 25 kV.
