Users of this antenna benefit from uniform illumination of target surfaces and accurate gain measurement. In addition, the Model 3117 exhibits high gain and low VSWR across its operational frequency band, accepting moderate power input of 300 watts. The electrical characteristics of this antenna were modeled using powerful workstations running electromagnetic simulation software. Equally important, experienced RF engineers worked with our manufacturing team to produce a practical and affordable realization of the modeling process. On completion, the antenna was testing and calibrated at our A2LA accredited lab facility. All production units are individually calibrated at this facility.
