Chelton Extends Range of Wideband Electronic Warfare Antennas

15 March 2018

Chelton has been a significant producer of antennas for the Electronic Warfare (EW) market for over 20 years and continues to help customers meet the ever-changing need to extend coverage with wider frequency bands, higher power and niche applications.

Chelton is pleased to announce an expansion to its range of wideband omnidirectional antennas for EW applications. Many new options are available, including:

OA-0.4-6.0V/2090: A wideband discone antenna, covering 0.38 – 6.00 GHz, capable of handling 100W CW. This antenna is very rugged, low profile, and with a built-in ground plane, making it suitable for multiple applications – especially for ground-to-air coverage.

OA2-1.76-6.0V/2406: A wideband, rugged antenna, covering 1.76 – 6.00 GHz, and capable of handling 50W CW. This centre-fed antenna covers L, S and C bands within a single unit. It does not require a ground-plane, and its peak gain is on the horizon, across the frequency range.

OA-0.03-0.50V/2425: A wideband, vehicle spring-mounted whip antenna, covering 30 – 512 MHz and capable of power-handling of up to 200W CW. This rugged, ground plane-dependent antenna covers VHF and UHF frequencies within a single unit.

The chart below shows a selection of the range of antennas and frequency coverage available from Cobham Antenna Systems:

The full range of wideband omni antennas includes but is not limited to: man-pack; body-worn; vehicle mount; high-power; UAV and ground robot antennas. Chelton also has a complementary range of directional antennas covering 300MHz to 27GHz, which are used for a number of EW and surveillance applications.
