$643,254.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Marshall Cross, VP R & D
Abstract:
"Existing antennas connected to soldier-carried VHF/UHF radios are not conformal, visually covert or robust and their radiation patterns and dominant polarization are largely determined by the soldier's position. This limits, rather than enhances, awarfighter's mobility and ability to communicate.… More
