803L: L-Band Slotted Blade Antenna


The Model 803L Slotted Blade Antenna was developed as part of an L-Band radar transponder system for use in drone application as an enhancement device for a tracking
radar. The antenna provides linear radiation coverage with minimum aerodynamic drag. The body of the antenna is constructed of stainless steel which gives excellent reliability
in missile environments with no degradation in electrical performance. The Model 803L antenna may be used as a single element or in multielement arrays depending on the
particular application and desired pattern coverage.


  • Linear radiation coverage with minimum aerodynamic drag
  • Antenna body constructed of stainless steel
