At Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products (SASP), we design and build custom application-specific antennas and antenna systems. Our team possesses hundreds of cumulative years of experience in the art and science of RF engineering, electrical engineering, materials science and state-of-the-art manufacturing. We are the industry's only true vertically integrated antenna solutions and systems provider. As the flow diagram to the right illustrates, we will develop and produce your antenna completely in-house, from concept through manufacturing and delivery. This extensive range of capabilities and broad base of technologies allows our engineers greater freedom to pursue the optimum antenna design... meeting your expectations for performance and cost. Antenna Types Spectrum will apply the ideal antenna technology to meet the dynamic challenges of your application. Our typical products have high efficiency and high gain in various applications over the 400 MHz to 8 GHz range. Below are some of our more common antenna types: • Aperture • Planar • Spiral • Helical-mono-filer, Bi-filer, Quadra filer • Cavity backed • Beam-forming static • Log periodic • Custom network/balun • Slot • Switched array • Loops/magnetic dipole • Extreme bandwidth antenna (EBA) Simulation & Design Application Consulting Our application specialists will work with your product development team to identify the critical parameters and requirements for your antenna system. The experienced SASP field specialists evaluate your application's mechanical and environmental factors to ensure our design team receives all of the relevant information to develop the most effective antenna solution. Spectrum’s The SASP design team reviews items such as board layout, ground plane size, mounting methods and port measurement, in conjunction with polarization, radiation patterns, gain, impedance matching and frequency tolerance criteria. We then apply sophisticated computer modeling software to design your antenna which quickly moves to a functional prototype. Testing & Measurement All of our potential antenna solutions undergo thorough performance testing. Our NARTE certified staff conducts a range of return loss, bandwidth, polarization and efficiency measurements. In-house capabilities are aided by our on-site anechoic chamber, which is used to validate the antenna's performance.
