Abstract
As part of an ongoing series of related efforts Progeny Systems Corporation is working with innovative technology providers to develop SATCOM capabilities supporting Medium Altitude and High Altitude Long Endurance (MALE/HALE), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), ground sensors and communications, and small size weight and power (SWaP) man-pack and dismounted technologies in an overall campaign to support the expeditionary warfighter.
High performance, low profile, satellite antenna technology is a key enabler in many of these conceptsallowing access to the RF domain for communications and sensing while reducing the payload burden.
For this effort, Progeny will investigate plasma Ku/Ka antennas that support warfighter requirements while reducing SWaP while improving RF performance in a low observable, lightweight form factor in multiple relevant Special Operations mission areas.
Progeny will identify mission areas that can be substantially benefitted from this antenna technology, fabricate, test and evaluate a series of antennas and antenna arrays, and demonstrate the functionality of their use in a live demonstration.
