Abstract:

Through this program, FIRST RF will apply a proprietary antenna technology already in qualification for a specific Low Observable (LO) weapons system. This technology promises to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of the design and manufacture of conformal antennas for weapons systems and other airframes. FIRST RF proposes a UHF-FTS antenna, combined S- and C-Band aperture, and a novel L-Band antenna for LINK-16. The proposed Phase I program is a feasibility study of applying this antenna technology to these three antennas. However, the technology can be readily applied to other antennas for other functions. Part of the Phase I process will be to explore other applications for the technology. We anticipate a significant reduction in the cost of weapons systems due to a reduction in the cost of antennas.
