AbstractThe intent of this program is to develop workable concepts that will result in commercial and military high performance, covert, low cost, adaptable antennas in gain, coverage, and a variety of equipment applicability for hand held use. Ideally, the program will result in a technology capable of significantly foreshortening antennas (4:1) while maintaining low losses, hemispheric coverage, novel mounting schemes, support of frequency agile, and modulation schemes and introduce technologies at or beyond the state-of-the-art. These miniature antennas are ideally suited for commercial personal communication systems, pagers, mobile cellular phone, and wireless local loop subscriber systems. A market for 100 million such items has been projected over the next five years.
