Abstract
Syntonics will demonstrate the feasibility of a direction finding / geolocation capability based on the Team’s pixel-addressable reconfigurable conformal antenna (PARCA) Software-Defined Antenna™ technology. With prior DoD SBIR funding from the Missile Defense Agency, the Navy, and the Air Force, the Team of Syntonics LLC and the ElectroScience Laboratory of The Ohio State University (ESL/OSU) have already made significant progress towards realizing the PARCA concept of Software Defined Antennas. PARCA is a conformal phased array technology that operates under software control to be pointing-agile, frequency-agile, polarization-agile, low profile, and affordable in production.
