The AM-205 is a multisector antenna, which has been developed by SVP Broadcast Microwave. This is a very compact, robust and easy to install solution for applications where hemispherical coverage with high gain is needed.
The AM-205 antenna is formed of 4 linear or circular polarization sector panel antennas to offer an omnidirectional coverage. It also has an up-down antenna which allows hemispherical coverage.
The AM-205 antenna integrates the sector antennas, the bandpass filters and the down-converters. At the N connector outputs it offers received signal filtered, amplified and converted to the UHF band. No external down-converters are needed.
The most interesting applications are three:
- Reception of signals coming from in motion vehicles.
- Offer 360º coverage in the receiver site. There is no need to steer the antennas.
- Reception of signals transmitted from aircrafts (helicopters/ airplanes) to ground.
This antenna has been designed to be used in the receiver site in airborne links; the up-down antenna allows the reception of the signal coming from the helicopter even if it is in the vertical direction.
