Haigh-Farr Omnislot™ antennas provide the same radiation pattern characteristics as a stub or blade antenna in a thin, conformal, aerodynamic package. Omnislot™ antennas are preferable for use in applications where blade antennas may get damaged, such as net retrieval of RPV's and high aero-heating environments. Custom shape requirements are common.
Typical applications include data links for high-rate imaging and communications, as well as transponder signals. Designs are available from 300 MHz to 13 GHz.
The Omnislot™ antenna may be either flush mounted, or mounted directly to the exterior of the vehicle. The antenna may be secured to the vehicle using mechanical fasteners and/or adhesive bonding agents.
The antenna may be mounted inside a radome for enhanced ruggedization. For high aero-heating applications an ablative heat shield may be added.
