Dourdan, France: Cobham Aerospace Communications has developed a revolutionary Wide Band High Frequency (HF) Antenna, transmitting data at a rate ten times higher than traditional HF antennas, over thousands of miles.
The revolutionary new technology, Wide Band HF, transforms the
transmission of standard High Frequency. Introduced by
manufacturers as "Wide Band HF", radios with this capability now
have the ability to transmit data at a rate ten times higher
than traditional HF radios. As well as this, users can now share
images and videos, with transmissions able to cross thousands of
Achieved at zero usage cost, it is a highly cost effective
alternative to using the satellite communication network.
Cobham's Wide Band High Frequency Antenna is the result of
Cobham technological and engineering expertise in the ½ loop
domain. The antenna includes features such as increased size,
weight and power, ease of mounting, high power transmission, and
proven robustness. Compatible with narrow band (traditional) radio
generation, it ensures easy emergency field support while also
allowing on the move users the full benefits of Wide Band HF.
Cobham is proud to be the first manufacturer to introduce a 2 to
30 MHz ½ loop Wide Band HF antenna.
