3D RF Tracking-Antenna Array

November 18, 2015

Aaronia´s new 3D RF Tracking Antenna IsoLOG 3D includes a high density, customizable LPDA sector array. A total of at least 8 and up to 36 LPDA antennas, for horizontal and for vertical polarization can be integrated. Additionally 8 or 16 specialized low frequency Antennas can be added to extend the frequency range down to 9 kHz. In total up to 52 independent Antennas can be equipped.

The antennas and the electronic is protected by a included radom which can be ordered in any color and optional prints. The radom is watertight, shock- and heat-proofed to widthstand even hardest conditions.

With the "auto LPDA rotate-switch function" it can be used for any Spectrum Analyzer.

The perfect solution for counter-surveillance measurements or drone-detection-systems (unmanned air vehicle). The ultra-wide frequency range eliminates the need of various antenna set ups to save space and system cost. This makes it perfect for mounting on vehicles (e.g. drive test cars etc.) and for hidden operations. Looking like a satellite dish for camping vans the antenna is not recognized as a tracking antenna.
