Body Worn Electronic Warfare Antenna

High performance body worn antennas for electronic warfare and communications.

Electronic Warfare (EW) equipment has traditionally employed large vertical omnidirectional antennas. However, they present operational challenges for their users as they are low gain, highly visible, and can limit manoeuvrability in operational environments. This new body worn antenna system overcomes these limitations, increases performance and reduces cost.


  • Higher and more consistent gain
  • Higher power on target, greater range, and/or longer battery endurance
  • Greater robustness and less prone to snagging
  • Low manufacturing costs owing to simple design
  • Discreet antenna reduces visual signature


  • Defence and security
  • Search and rescue
  • Specialist civilian applications
