Research Institution
The objective of the Phase 1 and 2 SBIR topic N07-138, “Extremely Wide Antenna for Airborne and Land Mobile Communications Systems” is to develop antenna technologies that can be incorporated into compact, efficient, and wideband antennas that can be militarized for air and land mobile platforms. • Cover the full 2 to 2000 MHz spectrum • VSWR is less than 3:1 • Handle 100 Watts CW • Omni-directional with Vertical Polarization • Height of 10 inches • The final antenna will fit into a “blade” radome for Land Mobile application and Conformal for Aircraft applications Also, a UHF SATCOM (240 to 380 MHz) antenna to enable the operation of multiple narrow band channels. RHCP with hemispheric coverage, 200 W CW RF input for transmit. 10 inch height. A full-scale improvement and a revolutionary approach to antenna design and the integration of antennas on airborne and land mobile platform are absolutely essential to achieve the objectives of this program. Astron is committed to achieving this objective.
