The AS-3916/VRC antenna is a survivable low profile version of the AS-3900A/VRC antenna. It is used on vehicles which launch TOW Anti-Armor Missiles where the back-blast of the missile launchers would damage the AS-3900A/VRC antenna. The AS-3916/VRC can withstand the application of 20,000 VRMS to the antenna element without adverse affect to the antenna or radio. The antenna has a higher power capacity to allow multiplexing of up to four (4) radios to a single antenna. This eliminates a co-site problem of multiple antennas interfering with each other.
