Application Types

Parabolic Antennas

Reticulated foam Absorbers are commonly used in parabolic antennas to improve the antenna pattern and reduce side lobes, making the antenna operate more efficiently.  Reticulated foam performs very well at very high angles of incidence (grazing angles) making it an ideal choice for side lobe reduction applications.

Point to Point Antennas

Whether the application is for a building-to-building network, last mile, or healthcare enterprise, Icon Aerospace Technologies helps point-to-point antennas operate more effectively. Reticulated foam absorbers and cavity resonance absorbers are commonly used for antenna pattern optimization, and for microwave cavity resonance reduction.

Wireless Backhaul

As wireless operators transition to higher bandwidth technologies like 4G/LTE and WiMAX, wireless backhaul is recognised as one of the major components which drives network performance.  Icon aids wireless backhaul equipment manufacturers with the high-frequency suppression tools required to make the system operate smoothly and give them a competitive advantage. Cavity resonance materials are most used for lowering the Q factor of microwave enclosures and reducing unwanted harmonics in wireless backhaul applications.
