Research Institution
This Phase I program has as its objective to investigate innovative antenna concepts for small, broadband antennas and a demonstration of the concepts feasibility with experimental models or computer antenna models. These antennas are needed for operation over the HF through X band ranges. Astron has chosen the HF and VHF/UHF ranges for exploration of its innovative monopole and dipole antenna elements and X band for advanced miniature phased array innovations for circular polarized satellite cornmunication antennas. BENEFITS: The antennas selected will have wide applications in IRIDIUM, INMARSAT, and similar satellite communications systems as well as the multi-million quantity cellular and wireless PCS and telephone market.
