Abstract:

The Navy wants to add multi-band omni-directional transmission capability to the SHARP data link to enhance transfer to ship/shore/ground sites in tactical environments, including during various aircraft maneuvers and flight profiles. ThinKom is proposing to demonstrate our ultra-wideband (>10:1), low profile (0.5" thick), and shape-conformal WAVETRAP antenna technology as an omni-directional candidate for the SHARP data link pod. ThinKom successfully demonstrated the potential of the WAVETRAP technology by creating an initial prototype that operated over the continuous frequency range extending from 200 MHz to 2 GHz. Now, ThinKom proposes to take WAVETRAP to the next level of performance and provide frequency coverage from 1.5 GHz to 15.5 GHz by investigating a new modified architecture that further extends the bandwidth and improves the pattern quality of the original "baseline" WAVETRAP while maintaining its key size and conformality benefits.
