ARA’s series of log-periodic antenna arrays supports a wide variety of applications requiring high-power transmission. These arrays are designed to meet strict beamwidth, gain, and power handling requirements. The log periodic design produces very broadband characteristics and a unidirectional radiation pattern. These antennas can be used to make accurate electric field strength measurements and an individually calibrated antenna factor curve can be provided.


ARA can also supply the pedestal, positioner, and controller when a full antenna system is required. These systems can support high accuracy positioning. Power requirements and overall durability are our prime concerns to provide a long-term solution.

Understanding weather patterns is an important tool for public safety and agriculture to ensure that the proper steps are being taken before storms. Properly monitoring weather patterns helps with preparation to limit damage and administer the proper size of response needed during and after major weather events. This is critical for public safety.

ARA designs and manufactures a complete line of Weather RADAR antenna systems to support weather surveillance and doppler radar applications. These can locate and calculate a storm’s motion and type by detecting rain droplets.

ARA antenna systems operate in S-band, C-band, X-band, Ku-band, and Ka-band and meet RADAR suppliers most stringent requirements. Antenna feeds for all bands and reflectors, measuring from 2 ft to 28 ft in diameter, provide the necessary specifications for the operation of a high-performance weather RADAR system.
