Abstract
Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative super-lightweight, multiple-beam, radar antenna that is ideally suited to cruise missile defense and other surveillance applications aboard high-altitude airships. The antenna provides surveillance coverage over a wide scan volume (up to 360 degrees) and continuous tracking of a limited number of targets anywhere in the scan volume. Most of the antenna structure is composed of thin membranes which are inflated within the body of the airship to create a very large, precision structure with exceptionally low mass. The design is carefully tailored to provide good beam quality and efficiency over the full scan volume while simplifying the multi-beam feed system.
