Global Microwave Rotary Joints Market – Introduction

Microwave rotary joints are electromechanical components employed to transmit radio-frequency signals between the movable and stationary parts of a radar or microwave communication system. Microwave rotary joints are used in those aviation radar systems in which one terminal of the rotary joint is connected to the rotating radar antenna and the other terminal is connected to the stationary ground system through a cable. This type of connection is possible by using microwave rotary joints, as they offer minimal variation in performance and low insertion loss during rotation in aviation radar systems. Microwave rotary joints are of three types: coaxial, waveguide, and hybrid. In case of coaxial rotary joints, power handling capacity and frequency range of the joint are restricted by frequency limits of connectors.

In case of waveguide rotary joints, operating frequency of the joint is restricted by size of the waveguide. In hybrid rotary joints, one terminal has coaxial interface and the other has waveguide interface. Here, the power is limited by the coaxial part and the operating frequency is limited by size of the waveguide. Microwave rotary joints are used in military and commercial radar systems and anti-missile defense applications.

Global Microwave Rotary Joints Market – Dynamics

Increasing Use of Microwave Rotary Joints in Radar Systems

Increasing use of microwave rotary joints in radar systems is a major driving factor for the global microwave rotary joints market. Microwave rotary joints are deployed in radar systems such as shipboard, air traffic control, land-based and airborne systems to transmit radio-frequency signals between the stationary and movable parts of a radar system. Microwave rotary joints are employed in air traffic control applications and for navigation and weather monitoring carried out with the help of radar systems. Microwave rotary joints are also applied in satellite communication radar systems to transmit communication signals between the satellite and the ground station. Microwave rotary joints are used in radar systems, as they are compact in size and they offer low insertion loss, excellent voltage standing wave ratio, and minimal fluctuation in transmission characteristics during rotation. Moreover, microwave rotary joints are used in military applications for recognition of obstacles and objects on the road during rainy seasons and winters when light visibility is poor. Thus, microwave rotary joints are increasingly being used in radar systems, which is anticipated to propel the global market for microwave rotary joints during the forecast period.
