Abstract
Develop and test antennas suitable for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with signals intelligence and communications payloads and the potential to be used with other systems. New ideas are stressed to achieve antenna miniaturization and widebandwidths.The development of a miniaturized broadband antenna covering VHF/UHF frequencies for potential DF systems holds the potential for applications in wireless 911 emergency location of cell phones, as well as for military ship and battlefieldsystems. The miniaturized boradband VHF/UHF communications system antenna holds promise for law enforcement, wireless, and military applications in aircraft as well as ship and vehicular applications.
