Antenex, a unit of Laird Technologies has introduced its Phantom Elite mobile antenna for mobile and fixed applications. According to the company, this indoor and outdoor antenna features the patented True Field Diversity technology that provides both vertical and horizontal polarization in a low-profile, sleek design. The device is utilised in public safety, taxi and utility vehicles as well as Wi-Fi applications. Moreover, the patented circuit board design ensures uninterrupted video and data transmissions in urban canyons and rural drop-off areas where traditional antennas fail, Antenex said.

Phantom antennas are specified by public safety, military, utility and transportation providers. As a vital component of the friend/foe identification system, Phantom antennas have been installed on Apache, Black Hawk, and Chinook helicopters as well as Humvee and Bradley military vehicles around the world.

The product is currently available in volume production and is obtainable in VHF, UHF, 2.4GHz and dual-band cell/PCS versions. Most Phantom Elite mobile antennas also provide users a 3db-MEG gain. All models are produced with field-proven ABS injection moulded material. Combined with the low-profile, aerodynamic housing, Phantom Elite antennas are less susceptible to damage and vandalism, the Antenex said. The antennas can be mounted with a NMO or permanent N female mount.

Pricing is dependent on frequency and mounting styles.
