Abstract
SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to design and develop conformal antennas for network enabled Strike Weapons. The key characteristics of the novel design concept include: ultra wide bandwidth, omnidirectional coverage, high efficiency, and significant reduction in the thickness of the antenna profile. SI2 will leverage previous experience in developing UWB conformal low profile antennas based on unique antenna design and substrate materials. The performance of the antenna systems will be simulated using high fidelity numerical modeling and simulation tools and validated through the fabrication and test of a prototype. In Phase II, SI2 will continue to improve upon the Phase I objectives of developing conformal antennas having wide bandwidth, high efficiency, low profile and light weight. In Phase II, the conformal antenna designs will be refined for application on a specific platform. The conformal antennas will be fabricated with SI2"s innovative manufacturing technology. The prototype will be tested in a relevant environment to demonstrate the antenna RF performance.
