The VHF airborne antenna

The VHF airborne antenna, of which there are three on commercial and business aircrafts, is the one that decrease the most, the aerodynamics performances.

The VHF antenna, of which there are three on commercial and business aircrafts, is the one that decrease the most, the aerodynamics performances.
Today, its height is approximately 40 cm (15.6 in)


 - Is it realistic to reduce its size, including the same electrical characteristics than before ?

Answer is yes.
 
After 3 years of research on new electromagnetic materials, we have developed a prototype of 22 cm height (8.6 in) prototype that can replace an existing VHF antenna, in the same place than before.
This prototype open a route of a new generation of communication antennas.
