Security and Surveillance Antennas


Cobham Antenna Systems produces antennas for a wide range of security applications including: remote monitoring of CCTV, video and network security, motion and perimeter protection, PIR, RF intruder detection, remote monitoring, and covert systems. Our light-weight antennas are required 'at the front line' and our base station antennas at the control office.

Inter-communication between staff is crucial for security patrols, traffic control, visitor access control, building entry, facility monitoring, and dock, warehouse and airport management. We have designed antennas for PMR and Tetra applications, and communications to and from helicopter and base, for data and video links. 

Our products supporting the safety and security of transport and logistics systems are focused on aviation, maritime, railways, buses, ports, ships (in other words, the supply chain). Our antennas are used in RFID systems, for covert monitoring (both visual and audio), and monitoring and controlling the movement of goods and people.


Surveillance is the monitoring of behaviour. Cobham Antenna Systems can install antennas within surveillance systems that support a range of operations and devices including:

  • Covert listening devices
  • Closed-circuit television
  • GPS tracking
  • Electronic tagging
  • CCTV Images
  • Military reconnaissance, aircraft and satellites
  • Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR).

Further Applications

Our antennas support further applications including:

  • High-speed data and video links
  • Outside broadcast
  • Video links between helicopter and base station, for real-time monitoring
  • Long-distance links
  • ISM band
  • Sector switching base stations for tracking
  • Covert surveillance deploying antennas built into special structures.
