The selection of appropriate coaxial cables for radar systems depends on the specific applications, as well as the requirements for frequency, loss, and phase. Some important factors to consider when selecting coaxial cables for radar applications include:
Our standard LMR® is the industry standard in high-performance broadband, flexible, low-loss 50 Ohm coaxial cables idea for lower frequency radars where phase is not critical, but loss might be.
TCOM® is a UV-resistant polyethylene jacketed cable commonly used for C band, S band, and x band radars operating where phase is not critical.
MaxGain® is an ultra-low loss, flexible microwave coaxial cable for high frequency radars up through mm wave bands where low loss is critical
Our MILTECH® family are hermetically sealed flexible RF and microwave assemblies. These ruggedized transmission lines are fully vapor sealed, optimized and qualified for commercial, military airborne and other demanding applications.
PhaseTrack® cable assemblies are designed for applications demanding minimal phase change over temperature. All PhaseTrack cables use a proprietary TF4® dielectric that does not have the abrupt shift in the phase that occurs with solid- or tape-wrapped PTFE-based products under normal room ambient temperature conditions.
