Research Institution

Researchers at JEM Engineering and Arizona State University have developed a new type of antenna structure which we call a Magnetic Flux Channel (MFC). The MFC can be embedded with conducting platform surface components yielding efficient in-situ reception and transmission of electromagnetic signals. A 3:1 bandwidth geometry was demonstrated recently under the basic N152-081 Phase I program. The Phase I Option will increase the demonstrable bandwidth to 10:1. The Phase II program proposed here will deliver demonstration hardware that will operate in the 3 MHz to 600 MHz band.
