One of the key customer requirements was a high resistance to vibration. These extremely durable dual band antennas can withstand shock and vibration up to 20 G and are specifically designed for deployments in demanding military and governmental applications in the harshest of environments. The dual band integral antennas are designed for a range of Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) applications covering a wide range of receive signal levels and mounting options from land mobile to naval platforms.

Product features include dual low noise amplifiers, limiters and by-pass switches with antenna frequency ranges from 20 MHz -1 GHz in the low the band with 20 dB gain, and 1 GHz-6 GHz for high band with 28 dB gain. The SAS 218 version is also available with the same low band coverage and with an extended high band coverage from 1 GHz -18 GHz.
