Syntonics :: Products :: FORAX RF-over-Fiber Communications System

Instead of using heavy, short, power-consuming coaxial cables, one coax cable per radio, FORAX™ uses a single long, lightweight, and secure fiber optic cable to connect all the radios. Syntonics’ Fiber Optic Remote Amplifier Extension links radios to their antenna at distances up to 10 kilometers (75 km and more by special order).

Military aircraft with high data rate Beyond Line-of-Sight communications requirements need one or more high gain satellite communication antennas. PARCA is a conformal, rapidly reconfigurable, electronically pointed, phased array antenna increasing system effectiveness and flexibility. PARCA technology supports multi-band satcom terminals on aircraft and vehicles from L-band at 1 GHz to Ka-band at 44 GHz.


HARC (High Antennas for Radio Comms

FORAX-HARC communication systems put your antennas high overhead on a tethered aerostat or tower top, implementing the aerial layer while the radios remain securely and conveniently on the ground, in the Tactical Operations Center or Command Post. Increase data rates by avoiding an extra network hop• Overcome line-of-sight obstacles• Extend the range of radio communications• Cover "the last tactical mile.
