Microwave Antennas
MIMO Antennas

MIMO Antennas

MIMO antennas, from Cobham, are compact and rugged with increased diversity-gain using dual-polarisation.

MIMO is the use of multiple antennas at either the transmitter or receiver, or both, to improve communication performance. In order to achieve optimum performance both the transmitter and receiver must support MIMO.

To provide the greatest benefit to the customer the majority of Cobham’s MIMO antennas take advantage of ‘polarisation diversity’. This means using orthogonal polarisations within the same aperture, either Vertical and Horizontal or ±45° polarisations.

This avoids the need for multiple units placed a number of wavelengths apart and results in compact antenna units which are highly efficient. This allows for significant increases in data throughput without requiring additional bandwidth and provides cost savings in antenna installation.

  • Increased diversity-gain using dual-polarisation
  • Space-efficient antennas
  • Polarisation diversity (vertical and horizontal, ±45° dual-slant or right and left circular)
  • Greater coverage using multiple sector antennas in conjunction with higher order MIMO systems (eg 4 x 4)
  • Minimise signal drop-out for a moving source

Voice Coils

Voice Coils

Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions can tailor a motor for your specific application. This customization can include size variations and winding characteristics to accommodate power supply availability, performance parameters and physical mounting requirements.

The voice coil is an electromagnetic actuator in its simplest form.  Voice coil actuators come in two forms; rotary and linear.  A linear voice coil will move in a back and forth motion and the rotary voice coil moves in an arc.

Voice coil actuators are ideal when a inertial mass needs to be accelerated quickly or positioned accurately.  The control circuit to drive a voice coil is not complicated as a voice coil does not require commutation.

A voice coil is a two-element device.  There will be a coil assembly and a permanent magnet assembly.  The coil assembly is inserted into the permanent magnet field.  When current passes through the coil a magnetic flux field a force is produced at a right angle to the direction of the current.  This produces the back and forth motion of a voice coil.

Cable assemblies manufactured by Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions cover broad frequency ranges from DC to 50 GHz. Mission-critical high-performance airborne cables are lightweight and exhibit extremely low loss.

 

Airborne cable assemblies must withstand harsh environmental hazards and still provide high quality RF microwave interconnects over a long period of time.  Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions’ high performance cable assemblies are designed specifically to survive these environments, offering the optimum in electrical and mechanical performance where failure is not an option.

MIL-T-81490 and MIL-DTL-87104 define a series of rigorous requirements to be acceptable in Electronic Warfare (EW) applications. We perform 29 unique tests during acceptance, including 65G vibration, -65° to 200°C at 70,000 feet, and 100,000 flexures.

Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions has been selected by major air carriers to satisfy critical insertion loss and phase-match requirements for the FAA-mandated Traffic-Alert Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) and Secondary Surveillance (MODE-S) programs.  TCAS cables assemblies meet the same reliability and quality standards as EW cables

Spring-Loaded (SL) Coaxial Multi-Port Connector

Spring-Loaded (SL) Coaxial Multi-Port Connector

The spring-loaded (SL) multi-port connector is a specially developed coaxial interface system designed to satisfy high-performance interconnections not previously achievable with multi-port connectors. Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions can provide individual assemblies or complete multi-port assemblies.

 

The SL connector conforms to such stringent cable assembly specifications as MIL-T-81490 and MIL-DTL-87104. There is no performance degradation when SL cable assemblies are exposed to harsh environments such as extreme vibration, shock, temperature and humidity levels.

To enhance the utility of the SL interconnector system, the following features have been incorporated:

Each cable assembly is individually sealed

  • In the field, individual cable assemblies are inserted and removed easily from the rear of the housing
  • A single housing can accept transmission lines of different cable sizes
  • Low VSWR and insertion loss to 18.5 GHz

A complete family of compatible interface test adapters, terminations, and pigtail assemblies are available.

Housings are available in several configurations. All ports need not be used, but could be available for future additional cables.  Rack and panel or thumbscrew mounts are available for securing the connectors. Other configurations are available upon request.
