Model 641

VHF/UHF DF and Monitor Antenna Array


  • 20 to 8,500 MHz vertical polarization
  • 20 to 3,000 MHz horizontal polarization

Direction Finding:

  • 20 to 3,000 MHz vertical polarization
  • Provides 9-Element Correlative Interferometry DF
  • High sensitivity over entire frequency range
  • Large aperture provides 2° RMS DF accuracy
  • Rugged, lightweight construction for easy installation and longevity
  • Fixed and mobile/transportable configurations

Product Description

The Model 641 antenna combines vertical and horizontal signal monitoring with vertical signal DF in a compact unit. An omnidirectional biconical antenna serves as a vertical monitoring and DF reference antenna, a loop element provides horizontal monitoring, and a 9-elementDF array provides direction finding on vertically polarized signals. The641 incorporates a broadband RF switch that commutates signals from the DF elements to an external two-channel receiver and generates test signals for DF calibration and built-in self-test (BIST). Typical DF accuracy is 2 degrees (RMS)*. The 641 is available in two configurations supporting fixed and mobile/transportable applications. The mobile configuration uses an electronic flux gate compass to provide a reference for DF bearings.
