Microwave antennas for extreme weather environments!

Designed to withstand all weather conditions

ARTA's microwave antennas are designed and manufactured to meet rigorous demands concerning environmental conditions and demanding specifications. Our antennas have been delivered to all regions of the world for both commercial and military use (Dual Technology) with proven reliability in all kinds of climatic conditions.

For very extreme conditions we have a heavy duty version capable of enduring arctic storms with heavy icing, the harsh environmental of the North Sea and tropical hurricanes.

Antenna Versions      

Normal duty antennas are designed to operate under climatic conditions prevailing in most parts of the world. The antennas will survive 55 m/s wind together with 25 mm ice.

Heavy duty antennas are designed to withstand the most severe climatic conditions, with heavy wind and ice. The antennas will survive 70 m/s wind together with 25 mm ice.

Arctic duty antennas are built to withstand the onslaught of arctic storms and the ice loading common in areas like the mountains of winter Norway. The antennas will survive 80 m/s wind together with 25 mm ice. Some of the electrical specifications might be reduced.


Rigorous test procedures


To verify performance according to customer requirements, our antennas are tested in authentic conditions at an outdoor test range, located nearby our factory (Far-field Test Range) This test range also enables thorough testing of new antenna concepts and technologies before full-scale production. For the testing of electrical components, well-equipped laboratories and anechoic chambers  for taking accurate measurements are available.

Electrical definitions

Relative to an isotropic radiator stated at three frequencies, bottom, middle and top of the band. VSWR. Guaranteed maximum value for the operating frequency band.


Half-power beamwidth (-3 dB) stated in the middle of the band.
Front-to-back ratio

Radiation level relative to the main beam at 180 degrees.

Tolerances Gain
Frequency < 3GHz ± 0.3 dB  
Frequency > 3GHz ± 0.2 dB

Radiation pattern
Production antennas do not exceed stated value by more than 2 dB.


ARTA's Antenna Code System

The fist two numbers indicates the nominal electrical diameter:
