Wearable Antennas Portfolio Expanded
Pharad continues to expand its wearable antenna portfolio with the release of its 900 MHz ISM Wearable Antenna. This newly designed antenna is part of Pharad's wearable antenna collection, which features body-worn antennas fabricated with a state-of-the-art thin flexible material that conforms to the user's clothing. The unique form factor of the collection is made possible by incorporating Pharad's patented Flextenna� flexible antenna technology. 
900 MHz Wearable
900 - 1000 MHz wearable antenna

Pharad's wearable antenna technology features a lightweight, unobtrusive design with flush mounting, which provides the user with a friendly alternative to stub or whip antennas. The wearable antennas allow communications link performance to be maintained without hindering the user's vision or movement. The antenna can be integrated into body armor vest carriers, helmets, and other clothing and outer wear. Pharad also offers a range of integration options including covertly worn antennas, which allow first responders or special operations personnel to communicate without observable antennas. Pharad carries the largest selection of commercial-off-the-shelf wearable antennas available anywhere.

Product Spotlight:
RF Photonic Transceivers

Photonic Transceiver
RF photonic transceiver

Pharad has developed a comprehensive family of optimized performance RF photonic transceivers for high dynamic range and low loss RF signal over fiber transport. The transceivers are packaged in 19" rack mountable enclosures and provide electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical conversion of wideband RF signals over operating bandwidths extending from HF thru Ka-band. Pharad's transceivers employ proprietary techniques to achieve the best RF photonic link gain, noise figure, and dynamic range performance available. Applications include RF over fiber transport in communications, EW, and SIGINT/ISR systems as well as commercial wireless networks.
