    Tacsat Antenna model UC-3004-481 is a lightweight, tactical, low observable, compact UHF Satcom antenna system. The polarization of this antenna is Circular (CP), intended primarily for communications through satellites. Its radiating elements are flexible and are difficult to see at a distance, from any view angle. The small Tacsat Antenna can be stowed in a very small pouch, or webbed onto a backpack.

    The UC-3004-481 Tacsat Antenna performs well in Urban Operations, as well as in LOS Tactical Group Communications (Inter/Intra Team Communications), using low power radios (up to 25 Watts). It may be used as a Low Visibility Concealable Antenna (LVCA) within the upper VHF and UHF spectra. For additional information on such functionality, contact us.

    The key features of this tactical UHF antenna are:

    • Small and Lightweight, stows in a typical trouser/jeans pocket, or a small pouch (4"/10 cm x 4"/10 cm)
    • Difficult to see/spot at a distance
    • Quick deployment (take out of pocket/pouch, connect to cable and you are ready to communicate)
    • Modular - one antenna can serve multiple purposes/platforms
    • Compatible with all the accessories of our UC-3004-381 Mini-UHF X-Wing antennas, which include
      • High Gain Mount (ACC-0005)*, doubles the gain (adds 3 dB) when installed on a metal surface larger than 28"/70 cm x 28"/70 cm, or on the ground
      • Suction Cup Mount (ACC-0005 + ACC-0002), to attach to non-metal and metal, smooth surfaces
      • Magnetic/Mag Mount (ACC-0005 + ACC-0003 or ACC-0001), to attach to ferrous metal surfaces
      • Bolt-on, AV 2090-4 hole pattern compatible, direct Vehicle Mount (ACC-0005 + ACC-0008)
      • Standard Camera Tripod (ACC-0005)
      • Make your own bracket - all you need is a 1/4" (6.4 mm) hole
    • Antenna elements may be webbed onto a backpack for tactical, on-foot COTM (Communications-On-The-Move)
    • In its normal orientation (connector pointing towards the ground), the UC-3004-481R is RHC Polarized (Right Hand), flip it upside down (connector points to the sky) and polarization will change to LHCP (Left Hand)
