Research Institution

Under this Phase I effort, Statheros and our non-profit research institution teammate, Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), will define, model, simulate, and analyze multiple Electrically Small High Frequency Antenna for Unmanned Naval Applications (ESHFAUNA) design concepts to determine the feasibility of an electrically small antenna capable of fulfilling USN’s CONOPs and requirements onboard a small, unmanned vessel. This will be accomplished in the following sequential steps: CONOPs establishment and requirements analysis Aperture design, modeling, analysis, and down select Matching network design, modeling, analysis, and down select Overall system performance analysis and design Phase I Option and Phase II planning for antenna fabrication, test, characterization, and optimization This analysis will result in one or more antenna designs with performance estimates against baselined requirements. Statheros will present these candidates to USN stakeholders with recommendations for Phase II prototyping, test, characterization, and optimization.
