Title: Miniature Efficient Metamaterial Antenna (1000-102)
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: W31P4Q-09-C-0416
Award Amount: $98,998.00
 

Abstract:

SI2 proposes to apply its metamaterial and antenna systems expertise to design and build an efficient miniature antenna system that performs close to the theoretically limits of gain and efficiency for a small antenna. The low-profile antenna system can be mounted on a number of platforms as the loading effects of mounting are mitigated due to the proposed novel approach. Our approach also includes an intelligent impedance matching network which provides efficient broadband performance for the antenna. In Phase I, SI2 will design the miniature antenna system and simulate its performance using state of the art FEM and FDTD simulation tools. SI2 will work closely with several prime contractors to ensure that the antenna system developed can be employed on DoD platforms. In the follow-on Phase II program, SI2 will refine the design and manufacture a full scale miniature wideband conformal antenna system prototype. The prototype will be tested and its performance evaluated when mounted on several different types of structures.
