PhaseTrack IITM represents the most significant
breakthrough in coaxial cable technology in
decades.
PhaseTrack IITM is based on the unique, thermally stable Times Microwave Systems proprietary TF5TM dielectric material. A proprietary
engineered material and process combine to
make TF5TM dielectric the most stable dielectric
material available, almost completely eliminating the rapid and wildly varying changes of
phase with temperature characteristic of other
high performance expanded PTFE dielectric
flexible RF and microwave coaxial cable
assemblies.
PhaseTrack IITM also offers low loss and light
weight making it equally well-suited for airborne as well as ground based systems.
