UHF Wearable Antenna for IOTV
225 – 6000 MHz



Pharad’s octane® wearable VHF antennas are the best performing small form factor antennas for operation at 225 MHz and higher for the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV) platform. 

This body-worn antenna is fabricated using a state-of-the-art thin flexible material that slips easily into a the IOTV plate carrier pocket. 

The lightweight, unobtrusive design and flush mounting provide the soldier/marine a friendly alternative to long whip antennas.  Tactical UHFcommunications link performance is maintained or signal gathering for SIGINT/DF is improved without hindering the user's vision or movement. 

We also offer a dual radiator model that adds spatial diversity and further enhances link performance.  The standard TNC connector allows these antennas to easily connect to equipment and radios. 

An available tactical vest antenna/radio carrier allows the antenna and radio to be easily worn over clothing.  Their unsurpassed range and coverage performance make the octane® wearable antenna products the antenna of choice for UHF communications and signal intercept applications.
