Research Institution
The objective of this SBIR Phase I project is to explore and design novel reconfigurableantennas with multi-band operation and pattern control capability. The first proposedelement combines a multi-band stacked patch configuration with switchable patch clusters,and the other consists of a reconfigurable slot antenna. Both elements utilize MEMSstructures as switching devices. The phase I feasibility study involves design,modeling and parametric study of each of the elements with limited experimentalinvestigation. The fabrication and testing of the elements and design of arrays of themare relegated to the Phase II continuation of this project.The reconfigurable antennas resulting from this project have numerous applicationsin multi-function and multi-band communication systems as well as military sensing,command and control systems.
