antenna adapters


Antenna installations on aircraft require a special set of skills. CarlisleIT brings those skills to the marketplace with specialized engineering staff and decades of experience. Our staff includes a damage tolerance DER (one of only 8 in the US) as well as several fatigue specialists to assure that our antenna designs have the longest possible intervals for repeat inspection. CarlisleIT has developed long life installations on aircraft as small as acrobatic trainers and as large as 747-400s for systems and antennas of every description. All Carlisle Interconnect Technologies adapters and doublers are manufactured from top aircraft grade materials and are fully tested to ensure product operational reliability. Detailed installation drawings and appropriate data are included with each kit that is shipped.

Small Antenna Doublers

CarlisleIT has a large number of existing STC approved installations for small antennas to support everything from the simplest GPS installations to larger and more complex TCAS mounts. These installations all share CarlisleIT’s design philosophy of turn-key kits and long operational life. Designs are optimized to provide long inspection intervals and easy installation. Blade antennas for systems like VHF and HF radios include the necessary intercostal structures to provide a secure foundation and CarlisleIT’s blind mate connector products make antenna maintenance quick and easy.

Large Antenna Adapters

When you need a large antenna, you need the expertise in antenna installation design CarlisleIT provides. These installations have special challenges due to their substantial size. Issues such as fuselage expansion and proper venting and drainage of moisture ingression become critical to a long operational life. Additionally regulatory requirements for ice shedding, beacon light visibility, and bird strike become critical features of both the structure and the installation location. CarlisleIT has on staff DERs, specialized 3D design and analysis tools, as well as the experience to navigate the approval process with regulators around the world.
