  Syntonics’ FORAX™ (Fiber Optic Remote Antenna eXtension) provides RF-over-Fiber connectivity between radio equipment and its antennas.

FORAX-RM (Rack-Mount)
Modular FORAX-RM systems link radios to their antenna at distances up to 10 km; 75+ km by special order. Modules exist for almost any communications or data radio in military or industrial use today, plus GPS and specialty receivers used in Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) applications. Links with high Spur Free Dynamic Range (SFDR) are available for SIGINT applications.



FORAX-HARC™ (High Antennas for Radio Communications)
FORAX-HARC systems link tactical radios to their antennas high overhead on a tethered aerostat.

FORAX-DAS (Distributed Antenna System)
FORAX-DAS equipment connects base stations or repeaters used in wireless intercom, public safety, and land mobile radio (LMR) systems to antennas in distant RF “dead zones.”




FORAX Tactical Solutions
FORAX tactical solutions are packaged for rugged field environments.
