Research Institution
The need for efficient omni-directional low power internal antennas in military and civilian applications has grown rapidly for the last decade. This research seeks to develop a low profile high performance internal antenna technology with minimal overall volumetric requirements for transceivers operating between 425 MHz and 435 MHz. The end goal of the research is to develop an antenna product that will enhance the Army's Remote Readiness Asset Prognostic/Diagnostic System (RRAPDS). This effort will focus on the use of robust flexible and semi-flexible laminates with favorable material properties combined with innovative antenna structures that perform efficiently in the near vicinity of circuit boards, board components and non-conductive cases.
