Abstract

This Phase I effort will investigate and determine the feasibility of procuring and modifying commercially-available satellite dishes for use as Tactical User Antennae for access to tactical satellite information. If feasible, this would provide DoD withan extremely low-cost solution to the stated objective and result in tactical flexibility - the ability to abandon these antennas, if necessary, with no concern for the expense of the equipment.Primary application is as a disposable antenna for use inmilitary applications. Besides the Air Force, this antenna design would be useful particularly to special operations, quick reaction, or light infantry forces in the Navy, Army, and Marine Corps. Low cost, displosable satellite downlink antennae can alsobe used for remote research posts.
