In the ever-changing world of technology - radiofrequencies, microwaves, and millimeterwaves are within the ecosystems that hold our domain together. Researching and communicating with various suppliers, along with budgeting, can be time consuming and unclear.
Brand new for 2021 from our rugged RF antenna supplier -
Southwest Antennas Part # 1001-253 is a dual-band omni antenna which features 2.2 - 2.5 GHz and 4.4 - 5.9 GHz frequency
coverage with 1.0 dBi of peak gain in S-Band, and 2.3 dBi peak gain in C-Band. This antenna features a rugged black G10
fiberglass radome and a black chrome SMA(m) Non-Rotating RF connector.
Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce their newly updated line of rugged cloverleaf omni-directional antennas. These antennas are available in both left hand and right hand circular polarization, which is ideal for air-to-ground RF links or use in multi-antenna configurations, where multiple antennas of opposite polarization are used to increase isolation between co-located antennas.
Three frequency options are available:
NASA is sending a helicopter to Mars.
The Mars Helicopter, a small, autonomous rotorcraft, will travel with the agency's Mars 2020 rover mission, currently scheduled to launch in July 2020, to demonstrate the viability and potential of heavier-than-air vehicles on the Red Planet.
LISBON (Reuters) - Uber is taking part in a joint industry and government push with NASA to develop software which the company aims to use to manage “flying taxi” routes that could work like ride-hailing services it has popularized on the ground.
Uber said on Wednesday it was the first formal services contract by the U.S. National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) covering low-altitude airspace rather than outer space. NASA has used such contracts to develop rockets since the late 1950s.
There are a lot of interesting and innovative applications surfacing worldwide, therefore we want to take a moment to dedicate periodic posts highlighting our Applications page. In this weeks edition we link to articles covering how 5G data speeds will help evolve the medical industry; the first nanosatellite to beam a smarthphone call from space; wireless enabled clothing and wearable biometric rings to help replace passwords, keys, and credit cards; and how airplanes are turning into communications satellites.
"It's becoming increasingly clear how serious Amazon is about using drones to create an autonomous Prime Air delivery network. The latest bit of evidence pointing to a human-free parcel delivery system is a new patent Amazon filed for a beehive-like fulfillment center.
