Abstract
Alpha Omega Electromagnetics LLC. has proposed a novel, bandwidth-tunable array radiating element architecture. This technology will support advanced technology multi-octave dual-polarized radar or electronic warefare-based phased array radiating apertures. In this SBIR program, it is our objective to demonstrate the viability of this concept through an electromagnetic-simulation based investigation using AOE's proprietary 3D infinite scanning array FEM field solver software. Upon selecting the most promising element topology, we will perform a baseline radiating element design and through electromagnetic simulations characterize its radiation bandwidth, scan and polarization performance in the array environment, thereby demonstrating the merits of the newly proposed radiating element architecture.
