Abstract:

ThinKom, with > 10 years experience developing and producing lightweight, low-cost and high-efficiency antennas using Continuous Transverse Stub (CTS) antenna technology and two years of commercial antenna technology development, including an innovative antenna technology called WAVETRAP offering wideband, beam shaping, recommends a WAVETRAP based Multi-Band Antenna solution based on their Phase I investigations into JTRS antennas spanning 2 MHz to 2 GHz. Recommended JTRS antennas will exhibit these features: 1) total radiation efficiency > 70% from 2 GHz down to 200 MHz and decreasing efficiencies down to 2 MHz, 2) offer low (approximately 10 ohms) match to amplifiers to achieve high power added efficiency and low noise figure, 3) be physically low profile (< 1 inch thick), small (about 10-20 inches in diameter) and lightweight (< 1 lb), 4) allow ease in shaping the elevation beam, 5) be of robust physical construction to withstand both airborne and ground vehicle environments, and 6) use low cost commercial materials and processes to achieve affordability.
