Pole/Zero and Delcross Technologies cooperate on getting radio systems right first time

Pole/Zero Corporation and Delcross Technologies have created a partnership to offer customers a “turnkey” source to meet the challenges of antenna placement optimization and RF co-site interference mitigation in shipboard, airborne and vehicular applications.

Delcross Technologies is a recognized industry leader in simulating installed antenna patterns and antenna-to-antenna coupling characteristics on complex military platforms. In conjunction with Pole/Zero’s state of the art, RF co-site interference analysis software and mitigation equipment, the Pole/Zero and Delcross Technologies team will afford developers of new or modified radio communications platforms, first-time success in fielding these systems.

Mr. Larry Ochs, Vice President and General Manager of Pole/Zero, remarks that “ many times we have seen system integrators make assumptions on installed antenna patterns, antenna to antenna isolation characteristics and radio interference vulnerabilities in the early stages of development programs only to realize poor communications ranges due to co-site interference as the system nears fielding. Realization and correction of these issues at this late stage has often delayed platform deliveries at significant cost and impact to both the prime integrator and the war-fighter. Our synergistic relationship with Delcross Technologies will preclude these late-stage surprises!”
