Blackheart nternational’s imited Visibility  ConcealableAntenna VCA is a roundbreakin tactical antenna that issmaller, lihter and less obtrusive than conventional externalcombat radio antennas, yet delivers maximum field performancefor battlefield communicationshe imited Visibility  Concealable Antenna VCA is basedon the proven patchpanel antenna confiuration, but exceeds traditional patchpanel antenna performance in several areasirst, the VCA is a broadband antenna effective for operationswithin the  z frequency rane Second, in spite of itsbroadband operation, the VCA requires no tunin or operatorintervention hird, the VCA transmits via circular polarization to eliminate “dead zones” or the need for any directional alinment Because of its omnidirectional transmission and compactdesin, the VCA can be worn discreetly and efficiently anywhere on the operator’s body—tucked in a pocket, or attached via hookandloop patches to the radio or radio pouch o morewhip antennas pokin the operator in the back, catchin on doorframes or snain on obstacles when enterin or exitin a vehiclehe Blackheart nternational VCA is available with ,  and inch lenth RAU cables, and black standard or optional, extracost camo patterns ultiCam, Universal Camo, Desert ier Stripe and WoodlandCamo he cable delivers  Watts peak,  Watts continuous with no amp C connectors fit hales, arrisand SCARS units SA connectors fit otorola units
he Blackheart nternational imited Visibility  Concealable Antenna was
developed specifically for military special operations applications
 he objective of the VCA project was to produce an antenna which would˜914-#%4155#$41#&4#0)'1((4'37'0%+'5(14/#:+/7/(4'37'0%;%1/2#6+$+.+6;˜4'&7%'9'+)*6(146*'12'4#614˜2418+&'#564'#/.+0'&241(+.'6*#6917.&$'.'551$6475+8'#0&4'&7%'+06'4('4'0%'9+6*6*'12'4#6145ear or tactical environment˜2418+&'126+/#.2'4(14/#0%'#%415512'0#0&74$#0$#66.'(+'.&'08+410/'065After laboratory testin, and extensive field testin by various US military roups, the VCA is now in full production Currently the VCA is used by overnment aencies for urban environment trainin, as well as specialoperations roups workin intheater
raditional antenna desins use either monopole or dipole antenna elements that are tuned to a specific frequency rane
The LVCA, on the other hand, is comprised of an array of monopole antenna elements coupledin a dual-offset array that allows the antenna to receive and transmit on multiple frequency ranges.
hecumulative effect of the individual antenna elements coupled toether enable transceiver operations on multiplefrequency ranes that monopole or dipole antennas cannot operate on because they are tuned to a sinle frequency rane urthermore, traditional antennas are typically metal tubin or wire, whereas the VCA is embedded in a Printed Circuit Board in a pattern that is impossible to create in freestandin metal or wirehe VCA performs exceptionally well in the field, and exhibits
above average field results when compared tostandard whip antennas
which are supplied with the subject transceivers or example, in one overseas theateroperation, the VCA delivered flawless
ten-mile line-of-sight communication
on a  arris radio between theoperator and an aircraftn sum, while the broad frequency VCA won’t o headtohead with a
tuned and frequency specific 
whip antenna, it
covers 90% of the operational requirements of urban and open battlefield troops and operators
—allwith reduced weiht and a more discreet, tacticalfriendly profile
