The primary objective of this Phase II SBIR program would be the continued development of materials for high temperature supersonic flight, designs for low profile, structurally robust conformal antennas and techniques for more rapid, cost-effective and manufacturable fabrication of antennas for aircraft, missiles and other Navy platforms. To accomplish this task, NanoSonic is staffed with a unique combination of engineers, chemists and materials scientists capable of designing, simulating and fabricating this antenna system. NanoSonic will consult with the Navy and prime integrators for guidance and application metrics. The NanoSonic PI is antenna engineer with years experience in both hardware design and simulation. NanoSonic's principal staff also consists of chemists, materials and chemical engineers that can construct materials and processes suitable for the efficient and manufacturable construction of conformal, low profile and small footprint antennas. Through advanced design tools, NanoSonic would configure geometry and materials to achieve meet specifications and then construct and test the antennas. Thus far, during Phase I, multiple antennas have been selected or designed and combinations of unique high performance composites and inkjet patterning have been constructed incorporating elements of antennas, feed networks and artificial materials to accomplish these goals.
