We Specialize in Developing Antenna Technologies
At our in-house rapid prototyping facilities, we manufacture cutting-edge antenna products and deliver custom solutions.
A type of computer-controlled array antenna in which the beam of radio waves can be electronically steered to point in different directions without moving the antenna. Learn more →
Array antennas consist of multiple radiating elements. In some cases these elements are fed by a corporate power divider or beamformer. Learn more →
Antennas that operate over relatively narrow bandwidths (generally much less than one octave) including patch and resonant cavity antennas. Learn more →
We can develop antennas and antenna components that are not only compatible with, but also work seamlessly within, your pre-existing chassis/housings and systems.
Our proprietary MFC technology makes these antennas unique. For one, they do not utilize electric charge to achieve radiation.

Antennas that are not existing designs modified by optimization but rather are new antennas designed by optimization algorithm, which can be a genetic algorithm. Learn more →
Antennas that operate over a wide band of frequencies (generally greater than one octave) such as spirals, log-periodic dipoles and Vivaldi notch elements. Learn more →
Housings, Assemblies & Components
Mechanical components created to support electrical designs, ranging from simple enclosures to protective covers to mounting hardware to moving mechanical structures.
Equipped to Validate Antennas
Our mission to provide our customers with quality antennas and services, using the best tools and equipment. In addition to our two testing chambers, we employ a variety of high-tech tools to support that mission including
- 20 GHz & 40 GHz Vector Network Analyzers w/ time domain
- 2 Advantest 3.8 GHz Vector Network Analyzers
- Synthesized Signal Generator
- Data Acquisition Unit
- Microwave Amplifiers
- Calibration & Gain Standard Antennas
- 3 Rapid Prototyping Printed Circuit Board Mills
Rigorous Qualification Testing
Our customers get the added benefit of working with the same testing partners who help us determine how well our antennas handle
- Higher Altitudes
Mechanical Design Expertise
Our Mechanical Engineering department provides expertise to every product design. Our capabilities range from full mechanical design to analysis and optimization to drafting to prototyping. Our engineers have the knowledge, skills, and tools to support our programs, and complete tasks in
Mechanical Engineering & Design
3D CAD Modeling
2D Drafting & Detailed Drawings
COSMOS Static Analysis
Engineering Analysis for Electronics & Packaging
Military & Commercial Applications
Our antenna engineers have decades of experience in the design, fabrication, test, and production of custom antennas. We have developed novel antenna technologies for various military and commercial platforms:
Direction-finding is the measurement of the direction from which a received signal was transmitted
Communication from at least one node that is on a platform capable of flight
Intelligence-gathering by interception of signals, whether communications between people or from electronic signals
Carefully Selected Subcontractors
While our team of expert assemblers and technicians manufacture our antennas in-house at our facility in Laurel, MD, we also work with outside vendors, manufacturing partners, and subcontractors to source specialty parts and services required for certain builds.
Our engineers work closely with all of our component suppliers and service providers to maximize manufacturability, reliability and quality. For a list of our approved subcontractors, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
