Contract: N68936-08-C-0055
Award Amount: $69,429.00
 

Abstract:

Small antennas are required to support surveillance sensors, communication links, navigation systems, command and control systems, and precision strike capabilities on Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) .Research advancements in meta-materials show promise in the design of high efficiency small antennas. Under this project, Applied EM is proposing to develop electrically small antenna designs using degenerate band edge (DBE) and magnetic photonic crystal (MPC) configurations. Extensive simulation studies will be conducted to design DBE antenna prototype achieving Chu-Harrington limit. Loading effects of lumped or distributed capacitive/inductive elements on DBE elements will be considered to overcome the fundamental gain bandwidth product limit. Multi-arm transmission line coupled DBE antenna will be also investigated to design antennas that can be structurally integrated within the UCAV.
