Abstract
ABSTRACT: Our approach is to enable the proven fragmented antenna design from GTRI at Ka-band frequency range through the highly dimension controlled and low loss PolyStrata process at Nuvotronics. This will provide frequency scalability, connectivity to phased array electronics through the microcoax PolyStrata transmission lines and ultra-compactness and conformity to a predesigned shape. This is in addition to already proven fragmented antenna design advantages proven by GTRI at a lower frequency range. BENEFIT: An advanced PolyStrata based fragmented array antenna will be enabled for the next generation Ka-band phased arrays providing higher bandwidth, dual polarization, larger scan volumes at substantially lower CSWAP. Our approach focuses on the architecture design and development of the module array in which is can be arrayed to build conformal larger scale antennas with the integrated RF electronics.
