MP Antenna to supply In-Building VHF DAS Antennas for Capitol Buildings
NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH: June 27, 2011 – MP Antenna, the exclusive developer and manufacturer of advanced multi-polarized antenna technology, has been awarded a US government contract to supply 1,400 multi-polarized antennas to the Special Communications Requirements Division of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.
The antennas will be used to distribute VHF radio signals in buildings, garages, and tunnels within the highly obstructed environment of the National Capitol Region. Given the historical significance of the buildings, the application required the antennas be unobtrusive and smaller than usual to be acceptable to building curators. Despite the small size constraints the antennas had to provide coverage normally only achievable with much larger high gain antennas.
“We are always encouraged when the numerous benefits of MP Antenna’s multi-polarized antenna technology are demonstrated in real world scenarios, but this contract win is special because of the high profile nature of the application,” said Joe Bliss, President of MP Antenna, Ltd.
