CPI ASC Signal Division’s most established technology finds new growth opportunities in Asian markets

High-frequency rotational antenna from ASC

"These antennas offer us extreme durability, ease of installation and the high performance that comes from CPI ASC Signal Division's exacting manufacturing processes."

The ASC Signal Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) has won a contract for 12 high-frequency (HF) antennas to meet a broad range of applications for customers in Asia. The contract includes four GRANGERTM rotatable log periodic antennas and eight horizontally polarized log-periodic antennas. Shentai International Trading, one of Asia’s leading providers of HF radio systems, has been a customer of CPI ASC Signal Division for approximately 20 years, and, with this contract, is placing its second order on CPI ASC Signal Division in as many years. The antennas will ensure that Shentai’s customers continue to receive reliable service from its offshore HF communications network and systems.

“These high-frequency antennas are among ASC’s most-established product lines and offer us extreme durability, ease of installation and the high-performance that comes from CPI ASC Signal Division’s exacting manufacturing processes,” said Helen Du, chief technical director for Shentai International. Shentai International is headquartered in Hong Kong with offices in Shenzhen, China.

“Our company has designed, manufactured and installed high-frequency antennas for decades,” said Keith Buckley, president of CPI ASC Signal Division. “The technology is familiar, but it requires extreme precision in manufacturing and a high level of engineering to achieve peak performance at each unique location. This is what is driving growth in CPI ASC Signal Division’s high-frequency antenna line in the Asian region. We are pleased to again assist Shentai to serve its important regional customers.”
