The AM is a multisector antenna, which has been developed by SVP Broadcast Microwave. It's a very compact, robust and easy-to-install solution for applications where hemispherical coverage with high gain is needed.
The AM antenna is formed of 7 vertical linear polarization sector panel antennas to offer an omnidirectional coverage. It also include an up antenna which allows hemispherical coverage.
The AM antenna integrates a bandpass filters and down-converters. At the connector outputs it offers the received signal filtered, amplified and converted to the UHF band.
This antenna has been designed to be used in the receiver site in airborne links in diversity 8 mode; the up-down antenna allows the reception of the signal coming from the helicopter even if it is in the vertical direction.
