Overview

The 2225NW precision performance WAAS antenna is specifically designed to meet the demanding standards necessary for worldwide WAAS aviation operations. The 2225NW antenna features both advanced spiral technology and a self-complementary element structure.

The antenna’s low multipath error design has the lowest phase error of all antenna element designs. The spiral minimizes manufacturing errors and its self-complementary currents act to center antenna phase. The large cavity design (1/5 lambda) allows for similar, choke slot-like (radiation pattern), roll off at the horizon and a superior front-to-back ratio.

Features

  • Precise and dependable – The low multipath error design has the lowest phase error of all antenna element designs
  • Minimizes manufacturing errors – Due to the spiral and the self-complementary currents which act to center antenna phase
  • Large cavity design (1/5 lambda) – Allows for similar, choke slot-like (radiation pattern), roll off at the horizon and a superior front-to-back ratio

Applications

  • WAAS aviation operations
