Wide-Band Diversity Panel Antenna

A6 - Ultra-Wide-Band, Six-Input Diversity Antenna with Up To 15dBi Gain In Any One Direction. Available in Single to Tri-band Configurations

A6 diversity ground antennas were designed to provide high-gain, 360° diversity signal reception without the cost and complexity of a dedicated tracking system. Each antenna uses five or six independent sectors with overlapping reception beam-widths. Integrated into the design are high-performance UHF down-converters with exceptional selectivity characteristics. This conversion to UHF frequencies lowers cost and improves efficiency while minimizing cable loss and noise.

A6 sector antennas can produce up to 15dBi gain in any one direction and are available in single to tri-band configurations.

The A6 is designed to take advantage of diversity infrastructure equipment like Troll's DMR6000 receivers. These receivers feature passive “loop through” so they can be daisy-chained together to receive multiple RF signal sources on different channels, simultaneously.  This feature makes it possible to support multiple aircraft and ground vehicles with a single diversity antenna. DMR receivers also incorporate Maximum-Ratio Combining and packet switching to “knit together” signals from different antenna panels and different antenna sites to provide cohesive 360°coverage over wide operational areas.
