Abstract
Syntonics will demonstrate the feasibility of a multi-function reconfigurable submarine mast aperture based on the Team's PARCAT (Pixel-Addressable Reconfigurable Conformal Antenna) software-defined phased array technologyy. PARCA can be used to create multi-function apertures that operate across the entire 1-44GHz band. Either rotating wedges (i.e., coarse mechanical pointing in azimuth) or multi-panel pyramid structures (i.e., all-electronic pointing) can be implemented with PARCA panels. Pointing beams using frequency independent true-time delay techniques and MEMS-like actuators, PARCA technology is currently at TRL 4/MRL 2.
