Abstract
Toyon Research Corporation has developed and patented reconfigurable antenna technology that represents a significant improvement upon traditional antennas. Toyon's approach is to use parasitic control devices to adjust the gain, frequency response, radar cross section (RCS), or polarization of an antenna element. Toyon proposes to use this technique to design and prototype a frequency-agile antenna array capable of scanning over an extremely broad range of angles. Toyon will partner with Agile Materials and Technologies, of Goleta, CA, inventors of small, low-power, ferroelectric devices. Toyon will use these devices to control the electrical properties of individual elements of an antenna array, enabling frequency agility, enhanced gain, and improved scan range in the phased array. Toyon's partnership with Agile will enable us to fully integrate the antenna systems with the control devices throughout the Phase I and Phase II contracts. Toyon intends to prototype, test, and evaluate a prototype of an electronically controlled antenna element during Phase I.
