Abstract
SI2 Technologies proposes to leverage its experience in the design of broadband, low profile array antennas to develop a wide band, high performance, low cost array to operate from S band through X band for Navy shipboard radar, electronic warfare (EW), and communications systems. SI2"s proposed array is based on proven technology, and will exhibit high efficiency, excellent pattern stability and polarization purity across the entire operating band, and lightweight construction. The printed circuit board (PCB) based fabrication lends itself to low cost manufacturing, and the modular architecture enables ease of maintenance and repair to reduce life cycle costs. In Phase I, SI2 will design and simulate the array to validate the proof-of-concept. In the Phase I Option, we will fabricate and test a demonstrator array. In Phase II, SI2 will build on lessons learned in Phase I to improve the design and fabricate a large scale prototype for system level test and evaluation.
