Abstract
SCIENTIFIC TECHNOLOGY, INC. PROPOSES TO STUDY SUITABLE FABRICATION TECHNIQUES AND SUBSTRATE MATERIALS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF WIDE BAND MULTI-LAYER MICROSTRIP ANTENNAS TO BE USED ON NEXT GENERATION ARTILLERY PROXIMITY FUZES. THE ANTENNAS HAVE BROADER BANDWIDTH AS COMPARED TO THE SINGLE LAYER MICROSTRIP ANTENNAS. TOLERANCE STUDY WILL BE PERFORMED TO PREDICT AMOUNT OF PERFORMANCE CHANGE, E.G., BEAM PATTERN AND RETURN LOSS, DUE TO TOLERANCE IN THE DESIGN PARAMETERS SUCH AS PATCH DIMENSIONS AND DIELECTRIC CONSTANTS. IN PHASE I, SCIENTIFIC TECHNOLOGY INC WILL PREPARE A PRELIMINARY ANTENNA DESIGN AND PROVIDE THE DETAILED TOLERANCE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF FABRICATION AND TESTING OF SUCH ANTENNA IN PHASE II.
