ARA has supplied a wide range of antenna systems for use inPermanent, Semi-permanent, Mobile & Tactical applications.
Integrated Antenna Systems offer:
- Construction for use in Extreme Environmental Conditions
- Easy Installation and Set Up
- Compact Size
- Modular Design
- Adaptable for Custom Applications
- Custom Mounting
- Positioning Sub Systems
- RF Subsystems
Integrated Antenna Systems are constructed using a building block approach and incorporate various customer-defined options. Special antennas are tailored to specific system requirements. For example, to determine the angle of arrival of incoming RF signals, a direction finding antenna may be supplied with dynamically balanced pedestals rotating at speeds up to 200 rpm. Also, for Search and Surveillanceapplications, directional antennas may be supplied with elevation over azimuth (EL/AZ) or azimuth (AZ) only pedestals rotating at 2 to 3 RPM.
ARA’s Mobile and Tactical Intercept Antenna Systems use our extremely broadband E-field and H-field active antennas and our collapsible antennas for quick assembly and disassembly . These ARA Series antenna systems are broadband RF signal intercept systems covering the frequency range from 10kHz to 18GHz. These antennas are designed for semi-permanent installations or for tactical radio monitoring applications.
Typical applications for these systems include:
- Spectrum Management
- Signal Intelligence (SIGINT)
- Search and Surveillance
- Direction Finding
- RCS Measurement
- ECM Requirements
- RADAR System Simulators
- Electromagnetic Compatibility Testing
- Satellite Tracking
- Satellite News Gathering (SNG)
