Alaris Antennas is a specialist direction-finding antenna designer and manufacturer. One of the company’s key strengths lies in its ability to develop and hold its own intellectual property as it continues to invest significantly in research and development, adding to its competitive advantage.

Since 2015, Alaris Antennas has invested in a bursary programme to attract and retain top engineering talent from South Africa’s leading tertiary institutions, and over the last eight years, Alaris Antennas have given bursaries to 10 deserving students. The programme is aimed at creating more interest in Radio Frequency engineering, and apart from financial assistance, it also includes vacation work where the incumbents experience on-the-job training. The Alaris Antennas bursary programme is currently open for applications to undergraduate and postgraduate students in electrical engineering with a keen interest in RF Engineering.
