  • Patent number: 11189938
    Abstract: Low-profile end-fire antenna systems to provide additional throughput in areas of need with minimal structural and aesthetic impact. The system can include one or more low-profile end-fire antennas mounted to an exterior surface (e.g., a roof or parapet) of a building, parking deck, exiting cell tower, water tower, or other suitable structure. Additional electronics can be remotely mounted to maintain the low profile of the system. The system can be color-matched, or otherwise camouflaged, to maintain building aesthetics. The low-profile end-fire antenna can be mounted on a positioning stand to enable the elevation and/or azimuth of the system to be adjusted. The low profile of the antennas can reduce wind loading and enable the system to be mounted to existing structures without reinforcement, or other modification, to the structure. The orientation of the system relative to observers in many locations (e.g., on the ground) renders the system all but invisible.
