Contract: W15P7T-10-C-A804
Award Amount: $69,318.00
 

Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to develop innovative concept designs for flat-panel, low-profile, smallest possible aperture, phased-array GBS receive antennas in the 10.5 f?" 13.5 GHz Ku-band and 20.2 f?" 21.2 GHz K/Ka-band. Furthermore, the objectives include that the antenna be realized within a 40f?? cross section. Conventional array antenna designs to meet the G/T requirements in the Ku and Ka bands would require apertures that are significantly large. Thus, it is the objective of this proposal to achieve novel designs by employing Metamaterials (Mtms) to realize physically smaller apertures without compromising on the bandwidth as well as on other capabilities of the terminal.
