Leaky feeder antennas

  • 01-Oct-2013 09:10 EDT

W. L. Gore & Associates’ leaky feeder antennas improve signal propagation and reduce dead spots without increasing the amount of hardware required on the plane, enabling passengers to connect easily to in-flight entertainment, Internet servers, and email accounts throughout the cabin. The antennas deliver proven performance in a range of aircraft—from small business jets to long-range commercial airliners. They reduce equipment costs by offering a single solution that provides connectivity for a variety of electronic devices. Compatible with numerous communication standards, the antennas provide reliable access to different wireless systems including picocells for mobile phone coverage and access points for airborne Wi-Fi. They maintain consistent connectivity with excellent antenna gain and coupling loss across a broad frequency range, from 400 MHz to 6 GHz. No maintenance is required for the life of the aircraft.
