Abstract
The objective of the proposed research is to develop a small, light-weight, broad-beamwidth, multi-octave antenna which has a useable gain of over 0 dBi and which can operate without degredation of these characteristic parameters in the presence of a 3.3 watt per meter-square power density. By using the newly invented spiral-mode microstrip antenna (patent pending), of which Wang-Tripp Corporation holds the exclusive license, as a baseline approach, a passive antenna prototype covering the entire 30-500 MHz range with the required power-handling capability will be designed, fabricated, and tested. To reduce the size and increase the bandwidth of this antenna, mode-switching and a feed network integrated into the antenna structure will be used.
