MISSILE GUIDANCE & MISSILE DETECTION ANTENNAS
Rantec has a long and historic background in designing flat plate slotted array antennas for the nation’s most significant missile defense systems. Air to Air, ship based, ground launched missiles are all market categories of Rantec’s proven expertise in high frequency, precision designed and manufactured slot antennas.
SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS ANTENNAS
Space qualified, a number of research and communications satellites in orbit today use Rantec antennas in X band, Ku and Ka band frequency ranges for satellite to satellite data transmission and satellite to ground stations.
Rantec moves easily between reflector and flat plate antennas, letting the customer specifications dictate which approach is more suited for the customer’s objectives. Rantec reflectors have been deployed in airborne applications for both directional transmit and receive data and used in large scale reflectors for precision approach radar systems.
Radar tracking, Doppler radar, precision approach radars all are market applications of Rantec designed and manufactured slot antennas to our customer’s specific specifications. Many of these antennas include precision machining and dip brazing, all part of Rantec’s in house capabilities to meet either full mil spec requirements or commercial needs.
INTELLIGENCE, SURVEILLANCE & RECON ANTENNAS
Satellite links are crucial to the instant data required by today’s war fighter. Rantec’s Ku reflector SATCOM antenna system is a flight proven system small and light enough to be considered for UAV’s and for critical ISR roles aboard a variety of aircraft.
Rantec has designed and manufactured hundreds of navigation antennas used for military en route aircraft providing direction and distance information, as well as, approaches to landing fields. Rantec has experience in both mechanically rotating antennas and electronic scanning and are designed to reliably perform under the most rugged environments.
From on board satellites, to aircraft entertainment systems to point to point broadband wireless communication use, Rantec has real world design and manufacturing experience in a wide array of antenna communication applications. These uses include aircraft fuselage mount, aircraft vertical tail mount and satellite mount for earth to satellite, satellite to earth and satellite to satellite links.
Rantec offers a vast array of high quality, highly reliable antennas solutions for radar systems, missile guidance, navigation, satellite and space communications.
