FXUWB.01 makes waves in UWB technology

Enniscorthy, Ireland 09 November 2016 – Taoglas, a leading provider of IoT and M2M antenna solutions, has developed a range of Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) antennas, offering more practical and easily integrated solutions than ever before.  The UWB spectrum spans multiple GHz of frequency bandwidth which is in stark contrast to current and historical narrow band communications systems such as Cellular, Wi-Fi and GNSS. This means that not only the approach has to be different at system level, but also advanced antennas have to be designed and utilized.

Taoglas rises up in the Drone / UAV solutions market

Taoglas launches a UAV / Drone antenna and RF products and solutions division tailored to the needs of the growing sector

Enniscorthy, Ireland, 07 July, 2016 – Over the past 12 months the UAV market has seen an explosion of interest from the consumer and commercial sectors. While military applications continue to hold the lion’s share in terms of spend, new trends indicate a shift towards consumer and commercial sectors. New and innovative use cases continue to emerge, including applications in agriculture, firefighting, mining, traffic monitoring, search and rescue, utilities, media reporting, and even the film industry.

While the landscape continues to evolve, the functionality and requirements within the UAV industry remain constant. Antennas must be lightweight, omni-directional, and aerodynamically sound with minimal power consumption, high efficiency and moderate gain. Like the drone, the antennas need to be able to withstand exposure from the elements – extreme temperatures, hail, UV degradation and resistance to impact. David Connolly of Taoglas, who was instrumental in the development of Taoglas UAV explained: Continue reading…
