Abstract
The utility of precision strike weapon flight testing is critically dependent on the use of fleet-representative test articles. The Navy has a need for a suite of flight test antennas that allow communication with the weapon under test without impacting the weapon’s aerodynamic or observability characteristics. Toyon proposes to design a suite of antennas for operation of flight termination, Link 16, S-band telemetry, and C-band transponder/beacon systems on strike weapons. The proposed antenna suite will mount conformally to the airframe, and will be designed for use on highly survivable platforms. Toyon will build and test an electrically representative prototype antenna during the Phase I effort, and will construct flight-ready antennas during Phase II.
