$566,211.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
A novel high power steered array antenna design is provided to replace the plethora of individual antennas currently employed on the AN/ALQ-99 Electronic Warfare System. The new array antenna incorporates numerous new features which give it some unique properties. These include a frequency… More

Innovative Low-Profile, Wideband Antennas for Radio Receivers on Mobile Air and Ground Platforms

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,978.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
Metamaterials are offering a whole new paradigm shift to the design of antennas, promising some amazing new features, capabilities and form factors. However, up till now many of these fantastic improvements are only available in relatively narrow bandwidths. A new metamaterial implementation is… More
