Abstract
SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to leverage its expertise in conformal wideband antenna arrays and metamaterial technologies to develop a high power jamming transmitter operating from UHF to Ka band. SI2’s proposed concept is to utilize its Direct Write and Laser Transfer conformal manufacturing technology and a novel wideband array based on a metamaterial. The resulting wideband, high power, low profile array transmitter will be capable of deployment on a number of DoD platforms to increase their performance capabilities. To develop the high power broadband (multi decade) jamming transmitters and accelerate transition of the technology, SI2 has teamed with a prime contractor who will provide system requirements and implementation opportunities. The Phase I program will demonstrate the performance of the wideband conformal array through state-of-the-art modeling and simulation. The follow-on Phase II program will refine the design and develop a wideband high power transmitter array prototype. Testing of the prototype will validate the simulation and the conformal array transmitter performance capabilities.
