[Avionics Today 09-17-2015] Cobham Aerospace Communications has developed a Wide Band High Frequency (HF) antenna capable of transmitting data at a rate 10 times higher than traditional HF antennas, according to the company. Cobham is presenting the antenna as an alternative to using the satellite communication network.
The two to 30 MHz ½ loop Wide Band HF antenna allows for users to share images and videos, with transmissions able to cross thousands of miles.
The antenna includes features such as increased size, weight and power, ease of mounting, high power transmission, and proven robustness. Compatible with narrow band radio generation, it ensures easy emergency field support while also allowing on the move users the full benefits of Wide Band HF.
