Modern naval platforms are some of the harshest electromagnetic environments known to the EW community. Radars, high-power communications, signal interception and direction-finding systems are all to be installed on the same platform. Normally each of these vying for the highest spot on a severely over-crowded central communications tower with more critical systems always finding their way to top of mast location in favour of any COMINT equipment.
Alaris Antennas is often tasked with supplying monitoring and/or direction-finding antennas for naval applications. To perform well in these applications, such antennas are typically designed to be as sensitive as possible to extremely low-powered radio signals that may be originating from hundreds of kilometres over the horizon...
