Abstract
SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) will leverage our expertise in low profile, conformal metaferrite antenna design to develop an efficient antenna that enables transmit and receive of circularly polarized UHF SATCOM. The conformal antenna will be low profile to enable conformal integration to Army platforms such as helicopters and UAVs. In Phase I, SI2 will concentrate on the design and optimization of a reduced profile UHF cavity and RHCP element. We will validate our design and manufacturing approach through fabricating a prototype and demonstrating its performance via test. In the follow-on Phase II effort, we will team with an industry partner to provide a systems level demonstration.
