Research Institution
During Phase I of this program, FIRST RF investigated a number of conformal antenna options applicable to installation on Navy Flight Test Vehicles. The technology proposed for Phase II is a low-cost family of low-observable antennas. The technology is very versatile because it is scalable to many bands of interest aboard typical airframes. The antennas come in two basic styles: those that support hemispherical fields of view, and those that support monopole-like radiation patterns. The proposed technology represents a dramatic departure from traditional methods of manufacturing low-observable antennas. The Phase II program will culminate in the delivery of low-observable antenna prototypes for use aboard Navy Flight Test vehicles at 5 bands for 5 separate functions.
