Research Institution
Small lightweight airborne platforms present severe constraints to the development of communication antenna suites. This is particularly so when there is a need for multiple SATCOM links including high data rate transmissions in the presence of interference environments. Limitations due to size, weight, platform motion, and cost constraints make it difficult to achieve desired performance levels. The proposed approach would examine antenna designs that incorporate control devices to provide states. This would provide a great deal of multifunctional and adaptive performance capabilities in a limited aperture.
