Haigh-Farr, a world leader in the design, development and manufacturing of integrated antennas for defense, space and commercial applications, continues to introduce new products with its latest P/N 16100 Broadband Blade Antenna. This new antenna will be on display (Booth 2415), along with several additional products within Haigh-Farr’s complete line of Broadband Button and Blade Antennas, at Unmanned Systems 2015, powered by AUVSI (Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International).

As the latest addition to Haigh-Farr’s broadband product portfolio, the 16100 covers the 2.2 to 5.85 GHz frequency range. The antenna exhibits omnidirectional coverage in the azimuth plane and a filled-in null in the elevation plane. It is available in standard and metric versions with both TNC and SMA connectors. In addition to airborne platforms, blade antennas can also be used on stationary applications and ground-based vehicles such as trucks, tanks, race cars and motorcycles, etc.

“Haigh-Farr’s Blade Antenna line was originally introduced in the early ‘70’s and we are pleased to continue to bring our state-of-the-art products to market with the unveiling of our newest model, the 16100,” says David Farr, CEO of Haigh-Farr. “With over 40,000 blade antennas produced, these products have proven to be reliable and rugged for a variety of applications, and this broadband blade continues in this tradition with an extended bandwidth design.”

With over 46 years of design history, a wide array of specific antenna configuration/performance requirements may already exist, or extrapolations from similar Haigh-Farr designs may be possible with minimal effort/cost. If a design meeting a projects’ unique requirement does not currently exist, Haigh-Farr has the experience and modeling capabilities to customize a solution.

Haigh-Farr Blades are a family of low-cost antennas covering from 300 MHz to 9.6 GHz frequency bands. The company’s antennas have been in use for over 40 years in airborne applications, with many models available for off-the-shelf delivery.
