Abstract
SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to leverage its expertise in conformal arrays and engineered metamaterials to develop a wideband conformal high power jammer transmitter operating from UHF to Ka band which is amenable to conformal mounting on F/A-18G pods with a drop tank geometry. SI2’s proposed concept is to utilize a novel wideband array based on magneto-dielectric layers which is capable of conformal manufacture using its Direct Write and Laser Transfer conformal manufacturing technologies. The resulting wideband, high power, low conformal array transmitter will be capable of deployment on a number of DoD platforms to increase their performance capabilities. To develop the high power broadband 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 successfully demonstrated the performance of the wideband conformal array through state-of-the-art modeling and simulation. The proposed 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.
