Abstract
The objective of the Phase 1 and 2 SBIR Topic N06-040, “Ultra-Wide Band Antenna (UWBA) For Electronic Attack Aircraft”, is to provide to the Navy innovative, new, and advanced techniques to increase the band coverage of the improved tactical Jamming Systems aboard the EA-6B and EA-18G aircraft (see figure 3-1), with very limited space. At the present time, the antennas used with the ALQ-99 do not provide all of the desired capability in one suite of antennas. The appropriate antennas must be selected to “missionize” each aircraft flight. The ALQ-99 JTS Pod (see figure 3-2) is to be populated with a full set of antennas to cover all bands of operation.
