Pharad Releases New VHF and UHF Wearable Antennas

GLEN BURNIE, MD – 01/20/11 –Pharad, LLC, the industry’s leading supplier of wearable antennas today released two new VHF and UHF wearable antennas. These antennas feature Pharad’s patented Flextenna technology, providing flexible, wearable antennas that conform to the body and flex with body movement. The new VHF wearable antenna provides efficient operation from 200 MHz to 260 MHz. The new UHF antenna is intended for 350 MHz applications and provides excellent radiation performance from 330 MHz to 380 MHz.
“These two new antennas further enhance the largest wearable antenna product line available,” said Austin Farnham, President of Pharad. “We developed them in response to customer requirements for small wearable antennas for UHF and VHF applications. The demand for these antennas is such that we now offer them as commercial off the shelf products.”
Pharad’s wearable antenna products support such common communications and telematic applications as MBITR, TETRA, ISM radios, cellular/GSM, GPS, and WLAN. The antennas are developed on flexible dielectric material and packaged in waterproof textile pouches that can be integrated into body armor vest carriers, helmets, and other clothing and outer wear. Integration options also include covertly worn antennas, allowing special operations personnel to communicate without observable antennas.Press Contact:
