The helical antenna finds its application in various communication systems such as satellite & space probe communications. It is also used for satellites at Earth stations and telemetry links through ballistic missiles. Therefore, the helical antenna market players are engaged in various strategic organic and inorganic growth strategies to cater to this rise in demand, which further fosters the helical antenna market. For instance, in May 2023, Calian announced the launch of the dual-band low-profile HC871SXF to its industry-leading line of helical GNSS antennas. The dual-band GNSS HC871SXF helical antenna is ideal for lightweight, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) navigation and a wide variety of precision applications.

Rise in UAVs – An Opportunity in the Helical Antenna Market

There has been a significant rise in the proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), also known as drones, across the military and defense sectors. They are employed for both operational and strategic reconnaissance as well as battlefield surveillance. They can also directly intervene on the battlefield by dropping or firing precision-guided munitions themselves or indirectly by designating targets for such munitions to be dropped or fired from manned systems. As helical antenna has high bandwidth, they are widely used for the automated UAV tracking system. It allows the Air Force to use the antenna as a log range GPS UAV ground control station antenna without having the requirement of multiple antennae. Thus, the rise in UAVs generates the demand for helical antennae.
