Syntonics’ suite of tactical antennas deliver good gain, are rugged and compact (most are pocket-portable), can be silently deployed, and have a low visual profile.
Increase the communications range you need for critical missions with handheld tactical antennas by Syntonics. Tactically rugged and sized to fit in your pocket or leg pouch, these innovative antennas were first developed for the U.S. military. The antennas are:

  • Rugged; impervious to water and grit
  • Silent to deploy, operate, and pack
  • Extremely lightweight and small; most fit in knee pouch
  • Low visual profile, using camouflage or dark matte finishes. HTA-SINCGARS intra-squad antenna is body worn.
  • Capable of talking further; LOS models talk four times further than “rubber ducky” antennas supplied with radios (15-20 dBi more gain)

Our aerostat antennas are optimized for lighter-than-air platforms.


Our aerostat antennas are lightweight, broadband, and operable without a metallic ground plane. Models are available for every aerostat type and communications application.

Aerostat Antennas  — VHF/UHF/L-band
Syntonics offers several models of ultra lightweight, rugged antennas for aerostat radio applications. Each model delivers near-theoretical dipole gain across its operating band. No metallic ground plane is required to achieve this performance, a major plus for lighter-than-air platforms. Antenna models are available for low VHF (30-88 MHz), UHF (225-450 MHz and 420-450 MHz) and L-band (1200-2000 MHz) applications; other bands can also be supplied. Installation options include attaching to the aerostat’s tail fins, suspending below the aerostat’s envelope, and wrapping around the aerostat’s tether.
