Mineral Wells, Texas – May 14, 2015 —Antenna Products Corp., a leading developer and manufacturer of military and commercial antenna systems, has unveiled the TACSAT-214 SATCOM antenna. Custom engineered for Special Operations Soldiers, this holster-worn mobile antenna system is a rugged, lightweight solution that allows for quick deployment and reliable performance during mission-critical operations. These antennas will be manufactured at Antenna Products Corp.’s 100,000+ square foot plant in Mineral Wells, Texas.
The TACSAT-214 is different from products currently on the market in that each element is matched prior to going into the hybrid coupler, guaranteeing better efficiency. The components have been carefully selected to truly handle higher power (200W) without signal loss, degradation or damage to the radio or antenna. Where other antennas mask the signal loss and VSWR, the TACSAT-214 does not, making for a truly more reliable handheld antenna.
“As a leading manufacturer of antennas for military applications, we realized a gap in existing product offerings for a high-quality, lightweight SATCOM antenna that was reliable, durable, and without signal loss at high power,” says David Brushingham, Director of Business Development, Military Markets at Antenna Products. “The TACSAT-214 gives the combat operator on the ground the trust and confidence that when they deploy their SATCOM in the field, they will have quick, clear and precise communications right out of the holster.”
