Abstract
The RF bandwidth from 20 MHz to 2000 MHz is of particular interest to the US Army as it encompasses various communications, sensors, and electronic countermeasure systems. FIRST RF has developed a passive antenna technology to meet the demands of the US Army program. There are two basic antenna approaches utilizing the same FIRST RF antenna technology. One utilizes monopole technology while the second utilizes slot technology. The utility and application of each varies dependent upon the installation requirement and the pattern coverage. The purpose of the proposed effort is to take the design concepts developed and validated during Phase I and further the research and development on these designs to optimize and implement them for US Army requirements. FIRST RF will approach this objective through theoretical modeling using both Method of Moment and Finite Element (HFSS) analysis, and breadboarding. It is a goal of FIRST RF to continue close interaction with the US Army. In this manner, breadboards fabricated during this Phase can continue to be made suitable for test by both the US Government and its contractors.
