Hi B. Thomas,

We have had customers in the past whose devices are used in very high impact environments. Whilst there is no prescribed method for protecting the antenna, often the device is fully potted with a suitable RF compatible compound. There may also be alternative solutions, depending on your device and performance requirements. I've passed your details on to your regional representative who can guide you with a fully tailored response for your project.

Many Thanks

Steve
