Abstract
The program proposed will advance the development of JEM"s conformal broadband antenna technology for aircraft, specifically targeting a dual-function UHF SATCOM and MUOS application. This program will develop a SATCOM antenna which will fit into the mounting hole for the existing Multi-mission Advanced Tactical Terminal (MATT) antenna now used on F-18G, handle high RF power (150 W), cover the full bandwidth of both UHF SATCOM and MUOS (roughly 242 to 388 MHz), and do all of this while having sufficiently low radar cross section (RCS) to be compatible with the requirements of the F-18 E/F. At the end of the program proposed here, we will have flight qualified hardware at TRL 7. A follow-on program would support an on-aircraft qualification test to advance this technology to TRL 8.
