Abstract
ABSTRACT: JEM Engineering proposes to develop a Ku-band Tactical Common Data Link (TCDL) Antenna System for installation on a small Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) and providing near hemispheric coverage. JEM seeks to produce a high gain, low SWaP, low-profile, and low cost antenna concept. The new technology used to achieve this will be an efficient one-dimensionally steered beam instead of two-dimensionally steered beam. BENEFIT: Technical success on the proposed program will provide antennas for transmitting video or other high-bandwidth, high data rate applications, over longer ranges. In addition, this technology will be available for a wider range of airborne platforms.
