Research Institution
SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to leverage its expertise in conformal wideband antenna systems and magnetic and printed resistive materials to develop wideband conformal antenna systems operating from UHF to C-band. SI2’s proposed concept is to utilize its Direct Write and Laser Transfer conformal manufacturing technology and a novel wideband antenna concept. The resulting conformal, wideband, low profile antenna system will be platform independent and be capable of deployment on a number of DoD platforms to increase their performance capabilities. In the Phase I program I2 will demonstrate the performance of the wideband conformal antenna system through state-of-the-art modeling and simulations. The follow-on Phase II program will refine the design and develop a wideband antenna prototype. Testing of the prototype will validate the simulation and the conformal antenna system performance capabilities.
