Abstract:

SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes an innovative solution to the Navy's need for ultra wideband antennas to support submarine communications, electronic warfare (EW), and radar functions. SI2 will develop two efficient, conformal, broadband, low-cost antenna systems for SATCOM upper hemispherical and omni-directional coverage . These antennas will initially be designed for integration with the Universal Modular Mast of Virginia class submarines, but could also be applied to other submarine platforms in the fleet. During Phase I, the wideband antenna concepts will be refined using high fidelity numerical modeling and simulation tools. The performance of the antenna systems will be simulated and validated through the manufacture and testing of a coupon level hardware demonstrator. The conformal antennas will be fabricated using Direct Write Technology. A full scale prototype will be fabricated in the follow-on Phase II program. The prototype will be tested on a representative Universal Modular Mast structure to demonstrate the antenna RF performance.
