UAV and Drone Antennas

Smaller and lighter weight Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones are increasingly being used for more complex communications and intelligence applications. To increase loitering capability and persistence of these aircraft, lighter weight, more aerodynamic antennas are required. Pharad has developed and manufactures a variety of high performing, lightweight, aerodynamic antennas for UAVs and drones. Each antenna class developed by Pharad has been optimized for low weight, aerodynamics, and electromagnetic performance. These state-of-the-art antennas enable increased flight range and link performance over traditional airborne antennas. Additionally, the wideband antennas reduce the number of required apertures in an airframe, further reducing aerodynamic drag and logistics costs.

The electromagnetic designs of the Pharad UAV and drone antennas consider the material from which the UAV or drone is constructed. Different solutions are provided for UAVs and drones built from composites such as fiberglass, Kevlar, or polypropylene, and for UAVs and drones constructed from aluminum or carbon fiber. Frequency ranges available include VHF through C-band.

In addition to our standard COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) antennas, Pharad offers custom engineered solutions that conform to a customer's exact specifications. Pharad's Antenna Development Team can develop custom UAV and drone antennas to meet specific form factor and radiation requirements.
