Abstract
This proposal addresses the problem of beam management and switching between multiple antennas on variety of vehicles. Emphasis is on Air Force A/C requiring communications with minimum interruption. The primary focus of the effort is directed towardsthe UHF band of operation. However, results are applicable to other bands of operation. In fact an overview of application of the technique to higher frequencies including EHF (MILSTAR) is presented. The proposed technique relies on a
