Abstract
THE AVAILABILITY OF NEW ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AND MATERIALS MAKES POSSIBLE GREATLY SIMPLIFIED, LOWER COST AND MORE RELIABLE AIRCRAFT ANTENNA SYSTEMS. AS AN EXAMPLE, THE ELIMINATION OF THE HF HIGH POWER COUPLER FROM THE PRESENT HF TRANSMITTING SYSTEM CAN RESULT IN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN SAVINGS FOR INITIAL ACQUISITION AND INSTALLATION COSTS. IT CAN ALSO RESULT IN ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE GREATER SAVINGS FOR THE LONG TERM LIFE CYCLE COSTS. EACH OF THE AIRCRAFT ANTENNA SYSTEMS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR THE USE OF ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IN ORDER TO PROVIDE SIMILAR SAVINGS.
