COJOT supplies Switched Beam Antennas (SBAs) for different frequency bands with support for MIMO (multiple input multiple output) – featuring dual RF inputs/outputs that are connected to a different polarization of the radiator elements. MIMO is an essential requirement as modern Radio Systems are often relying on this to enhance the capacity or coverage of a radio network.
COJOT SBAs are currently in use at major global players in multiple applications – fielded to Tactical Communication networks both on land and at sea. These contain fixed Point-to-Multipoint as well as Mobile-Ad-Hoc-Networks (MANET). SBAs fit extremely well to these kind of adapting networks like MESH – where on top of higher layer routing, physical RF link routing can also be utilized.
Spectrum monitoring and management are key factors in these kind of modern communication networks and with different beam modes and fast beam steering capabilities, COJOT SBAs provide an ideal solution for these – offering enhanced LPI/LPD resistance.
Automatic and quick network setup and management
In addition to superior performance features and enhancements, COJOT beam steering antennas can also improve and facilitate common basic routines in a wireless network. One such example is when you add a new node to a mobile network, it is often problematic and time-consuming to manually allocate the precise direction of the best signal with directional antennas. However, using a SBA in omni-mode, the new node can join the network immediately and the link can be optimized afterwards by searching for the strongest signal using the SBA’s narrow beam. Similarly, the wide beam mode provides faster scanning time. The possibility to utilize sharp beams within a frame rate over the 360-degree area opens many possibilities for network management and usage of advanced network routing protocols like OSPF (Open Shortest Path First).
