SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to accelerate development of printed, high-efficiency phased arrays operating at Navy-relevant frequencies. The proposed development effort will include optimization of the array printing techniques from Phase I to meet the Navys phased array performance goals. The printed arrays will incorporate both printed radiating elements and an innovative printed packaging concept for the array electronics. SI2s approach will minimize production costs, array volume, and thermal management issues, and maximize array efficiency. This effort will combine SI2s considerable experience with printed electronics, phased array antenna design, and phased array antenna fabrication and testing, all for DoD applications. The Phase II effort will focus on larger, steerable printed arrays, whose design and fabrication will be informed by the Phase I study.
