Abstract
SI2 proposes to apply its metamaterial and antenna systems expertise to design and build an efficient miniature wideband metamaterial antenna system that performs close to the theoretical limits of gain and efficiency. The antenna system can be mounted on a number of platforms as the loading effects of mounting are mitigated due to the proposed novel approach. Our approach also includes an intelligent impedance matching network which provides efficient wideband performance for the antenna. In Phase II, SI2 will modify the design of the Phase I miniature antenna system to meet a specific DoD requirement and will demonstrate its performance through measurements in a laboratory environment. To transition the technology of this miniature metamaterial antenna, SI2 has obtained the support of a prime DoD platform contractor. In the follow-on Phase III program, SI2 will design and manufacture a full scale miniature wideband metamaterial antenna system and demonstrate its performance on a representative platform.
