Hanover, MD – Pharad introduced today two new Wearable Antennas for use in the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV). The two antennas are the first in a new series of VHF and UHF antennas to be added to Pharad’s patented wearable antenna product line. The VHF IOTV wearable antenna operates from 30 to 512 MHz and is intended to be paired with a VHF Tactical Radio. The UHF IOTV wearable antenna operates from 225 MHz to 6 GHz and can operate with wideband radios or signal intelligence equipment.
“We continue to advance our patented wearable antenna technology for new products,” said Pharad President Austin Farnham. “Pharad’s original VHF wearable antenna was developed for the Interceptor vest. Since our customers are now using different vest configurations we optimized our antennas for their specific dismounted gear requirements. The demand for these new configurations has been so high that we are now offering them as standard products.”
