Abstract
A body-worn radio-frequency direction finding antenna array is proposed to cover the 50-500 MHz band with good gain and antenna patterns suitable for accurate direction finding. The array will be thin and lightweight, and will be integrated into a vest to be worn by a soldier. Feasibility will be demonstrated via computational modeling and the fabrication and test of a proof-of-concept antenna.
