UAV GNSS RTK Antenna Solution
Get to know us
Maxtena was founded in 2007, fueled by the desire to create the first commercially viable digitally steerable antenna. Several years of conducting research has culminated in the creation of Dynamic Aperture Technology (DAT™).
We use DAT to design extremely lightweight and high-performance helical, patch and LTE antenna solutions for wireless communications. With our industry leading antenna engineering staff, we can provide expert assistance in any antenna integration, and are uniquely positioned to enable OEMs with a custom antenna solution.
How it all started
Maxtena was founded in 2007 with a singular vision of creating the first commercially viable, digitally steerable, beamforming antenna system. The passion and focus from founders Stani Licul and Nathan Cummings resulted in years of research and product development that culminated with the creation of Maxtena’s patented Dynamic Aperture Technology (DAT™) for beamforming systems. Following from those pioneering efforts, in 2013 Maxtena became the first company to commercialize a beamforming system capable of simultaneously tracking multiple satellites while on-the-move. Today Maxtena’s beamformers enable communications on tens of thousands of mobile platforms anywhere on planet Earth for both terrestrial and satellite-based networks.
Maxtena has lead the industry in pioneering its patented Helicore™ compact quadrifilar antenna technology. Maxtena’s Helicore technology has been globally adopted in both satellite communications and satellite navigation markets due to its high performance and small size. The first Helicore based product was introduced in 2010 and Helicore products have sold in millions in a wide variety of devices and industries.
Maxtena’s core values today include a passion for innovation and research with a central tenet of product realization. These values have allowed Maxtena to expand its product offerings to include a wide variety of integrated wireless devices with advanced hardware and software that fully utilize its DAT and Helicore technologies.
