Abstract
Directed electromagnetic (RF, microwave and millimeter wave) energy offers unique and flexible options for non-lethal weapons, but the technology for these systems needs to achieve smaller and lighter packaging. Of particular interest are the Multi-frequency RF Vehicle Stopper at L-Band and the Active Denial Array at W-Band. The antennas currently employed for these systems are large reflectors that present high-profile targets to enemy forces. Significant reduction in the aperture size is sought to reduce targeting and support covert operation. In this Phase I effort, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts enabling high power, high gain performance from a low-profile or conformal antenna. The proposed concepts leverage existing FIRST RF W-Band and L-Band technology in tailored band-specific configurations that enable a paradigm-shifting integration and performance capabilities for a variety of ground vehicle installations.
