New Horizontally Polarized Directional Patch Antenna Launched

Published: 10 May 2021 by

Southwest Antennas has launched a new horizontally polarized antenna option. The Part # 1004-034 small form factor directional antenna is ideal for radio deployments which require horizontal polarization and directional coverage.

SW-Antennas Horizontally Polarized Directional Patch Antenna

Designed for L and S-band applications, Part # 1004-034 features an operational frequency range of 1.7 – 2.5 GHz and 9.8 dBi of peak gain. It features a horizontal polarization when installed with the RF connector facing down. Due to the relative symmetry of the elevation and azimuth patterns, this antenna can also be deployed when turned 90 degrees to offer vertical polarization as well.

Owing to the linear polarization and close symmetry of both the azimuth and elevation patterns, this antenna can be deployed for use in either “horizontal” or “vertical” polarized applications by rotating the antenna when installing.

Markets and applications include:

  • Federal law enforcement
  • Military and DOD
  • Broadcast video / BAS
  • 2.4 GHz ISM
  • Unmanned ground vehicles
  • Ground control and UAS tracking systems
  • Border security
  • Covert or overt surveillance systems
  • Vehicles
  • Fixed site infrastructure
  • Rapid deploy networks for emergency management
  • Smart city networks
  • MIMO and MANET mesh networks
