Abstract
The objective of the SBIR Topic AF 071-059, “Planar Wideband Phased-Array Element for VHF Radar”, is the development of a single antenna element which can be used for a VHF (25 to 88MHz) Foliage Penetration (FOPEN) Radar Phased-Array. It must also be designed to be able to be placed on the skin (metal or composite) of the aircraft fuselage. The development of novel planar phased-array elements with low profile and wide bandwidth (25 to 88MHz) is the final objective of this SBIR effort.
