Abstract:

Conventional antennas are often not suitable for military applications due to shape and size constraints imposed by the competing demands for good radio-frequency-specific electromagnetic resonance with high durability and low visibility. Consequently,numerous varieties of antennas have been created over the years to help solve these electrical and mechanical constraints. Sciperio has developed a Genetic Algorithm method of designing size-reduced and conformal antennas that solves many of the problemsassociated with practical antenna design and implementation.Additionally, Sciperio's method can design high-impedance surfaces that preserve antenna performance in the proximity of metal surfaces, which often render nearby antennas inoperative. The combination of size-reduced, conformal antennas withhigh-impedance surfaces allows the creation of rugged, low-profile, conformal antennas optimized for implementation on a wide variety of vehicles. The ability to place conformal antennas of onto various surfaces has several distinct market applications in both military and commercial markets, two of which include vehicle implementation and the identification industry.
