Multiplexer, four radios – one antenna
The INTAS-S4 passive antenna combiner allows four transceivers to be connected to a single antenna. Reducing the number of antenna on a platform reduces the visual impact and can improve the radiation pattern due to the reduced effect of co-site interference.
Successful integration of multiple antennas onto the ground and shipboard platform poses many challenges. The platform features impact antenna performance by blocking, reflecting or re-radiating energy, and co-site interference can impair the effectiveness of multi-antenna installations.
