Title: Novel HybridSil Materials for Low-Profile, Reduced Signature, Multifunctional Conformal Antennas
Agency: DOD
Contract: HQ0147-12-C-7923
Award Amount: $100,000.00


This Phase I SBIR program will encompass design, simulation and construction of miniaturized conformal low-profile antennas for application in GPS, Telemetry and Transponders; the designs would encompass multiband and ultrawideband elements along with aperture structures to reduce signature. NanoSonic has created a team with a unique combination of engineers, chemists and materials scientists capable of design, simulation and fabrication of this product. As a high performance, survivable and reliable antenna solution, NanoSonic would construct covalently bonded substrate layers from customized nanocomposite HybridSil customizable dielectric substrates and unparalleled HybridSil erosion resistant and thermal barrier coatings in order to optimize antenna performance and reliability. The HybridSil materials are novel high performance RF and microwave substrates developed for rigorous and harsh environments including temperature extremes and UV stability. NanoSonic would pattern antennas on the HybridSil materials or incorporate these directly into the airborne vehicle"s skin drawing on our expertise in structural electromagnetic composites. Preliminary antenna testing would also be performed in-house with NanoSonic equipment. The NanoSonic PI is antenna engineer with many years"experience in both hardware implementation and simulation software construction. NanoSonic would team with a defense prime to promote insertion.
