Abstract
Through this program FIRST RF plans to develop an innovative UHF window mounted antenna to be installed on the interior window of a fixed or rotary wing aircraft. The installation requires no modifications to the interior of the vehicle. The proposed design leverages a FIRST RF L-Band window mounted antenna that has been flown for the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The antenna uses multiple high strength vacuum suction cups that can be actuated by hand. The proposed technology also addresses human safety considerations by minimizing back lobe radiation. The antenna achieves high gain and is capable of handling high power requirements. It is light weight, simple, producible, and very easy to install. The installation time for this antenna is under 20 minutes.
