High-Power RF

Compact Deployable Wideband System

Part Number: RFXC-400

The RFXC-400 is an extremely compact and lightweight wideband source, originally developed for counter-UAS/UAV/drone applications in a footprint that could also be UAV/UAS-deployable.

The RFXC-400 can run continuously at a repetition rate of 10 Hz for up to 10 minutes and is powered internally by rechargeable batteries. The integrated reflector on the unit produces a wide beam pattern (~75 degrees) for counter-swarm applications, but also protects the host vehicle from the high electric field.

The RFXC-400 should not be operated near computer-controlled machinery or unshielded electronic equipment unless the intention is to cause potentially irreversible damage. Safe operating principles should be followed when any user is in proximity of the system, and the high-voltage switch is on. This product is export-controlled and subject to ITAR or EAR regulations. A valid end-user statement is required for both foreign and domestic sales of this system.
