The DPV-49 consists of two vertically polarized, omnidirectional dipole fed in phase, covering the frequency range 1700 to 1860 MHz. These dipoles are housed in a single radome that provides both mechanical stability and environmental protection. The antenna is designed for mobile ground communication and use in an extreme environment. It is provided with a coaxial mounting arrangement to enclose the electrical connections away from the environment. The base is mounted to the array by a spring to protect the antenna from shock and overhead obstructions that are encountered.
