Utilizing high quality antennas is a cost effective way to upgrade the performance of an existing radio systems for better RF link margin and higher data/video throughput across many types of terrain and operating conditions.

ADS-B is an acronym for Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast, a new real-time situational awareness and surveillance program which is part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen air traffic control modernization mandate.
