Company Profile

Advanced Receiver Research, also known as Ar² Communications Products, was founded in 1978 by Jay Rusgrove, amateur radio call sign W1VD. An electronic communications equipment manufacturing and consulting firm, Ar² occupies a manufacturing facility located at Johnnycake/Mountain Meadows Airport in Harwinton CT.

The primary product line of the company includes Gallium Arsenide low-noise preamplifiers (LNA’s), with hundreds of standard frequency models and special frequency units. These preamplifiers represent the state-of -the-art in low-noise preamplifier performance. They are widely used to increase the coverage area of communications systems, especially with the proliferation of small, low-power hand held radios. These preamplifiers are primarily used by Police and Fire Departments, the military, government agencies and private industry. Other uses of our preamplifiers include: deep space research, medical MRI equipment, cellular telephone, radar, satellite communications, data communications, motorist aid callboxes, security systems, cable television head ends, remote control equipment, radio and television station links, amateur (ham) radio, wildlife tracking equipment and numerous other applications. Other product lines include coaxial cable assemblies, power dividers, receiver multicouplers, power supplies, custom assemblies, Gunnplexer microwave equipment and accessories.

Advanced Receiver Research has a customer base that ranges from individuals which purchase a single preamplifier for their ham radio station, small communications companies that install several preamplifiers on local Police and Fire Department equipment, Fortune 500 companies purchasing hundreds of units for data transfer equipment to the Department of the Air Force contracting for 10,000 LNA’s used to upgrade the FBS-85 Eglin Space Surveillance Radar.

The company also provides development and consulting services for individuals, companies and government agencies. New product development may be as simple as a custom amplifier to be used in a new product venture. Consultation is provided for Ar² and non Ar² product development, enhancement or problem resolution. Government agencies, such as the Department of Defense have used the company resources for special receiver modifications for use in operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
