Industry Spotlight: Concealed Antennas

May 2023
Concealed Antennas | JEM Engineering

Concealed antennas are a relatively new trend in the RF industry. In this blog post, we will explore what concealed antennas are, how they work, and some of their benefits.

Concealed antennas, as the term suggest, are antennas that are designed to be relatively or completely hidden from view.

These antennas are typically installed within a structure, such as a building, vehicle, or even in somewhere smaller and less conspicuous. While they are usually smaller and more discreet than traditional antennas, they work in much the same way as traditional antennas, in which they use electromagnetic radiation to transmit and receive signals. Also like traditional antennas, concealed antennas work within a frequency range tailored to their intended application.

There are many benefits to concealed antennas.

Certain antennas can be designed to be almost invisible. Being able to hide the equipment not only allows for more stealth, but also enhanced aesthetics. Concealing antennas can also prevent them from being vandalized or stolen in public areas.

The antenna industry continues to develop products that are increasingly more portable and compact. Because these antennas can be installed within architectural and vehicular structures, they can free up valuable space that would have otherwise been required for a traditional external antenna.

Antennas can also be designed to work with a variety of materials and substrates with which traditional antennas normally do not. This enhanced versatility can render better signal quality and reduced interference.

Concealed antennas are only growing in relevance in world of antenna technology.

They provide an elegant solution to traditional antenna installation methods and can be used in a variety of applications where aesthetics, space-saving, improved signal quality, and reduced interference are most important. As the demand for sleek, discreet, and reliable wireless communication solutions continues to grow, we can expect to see more and more applications of lower profile and completely hidden antennas in the future.

An Overview of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles — and their Antennas

An unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV, refer to a vehicle that is able to fly remotely, either with some sort of controller or autonomously. An unmanned aircraft system, or UAS, includes not only the UAV, itself but also the person on the ground controlling the flight, as well as the system in place that connects the two of them.
