Army Advances Materials for New Low-Profile Antenna
- Magazine Article
Army scientists have developed a first-of-its-kind antenna that could change how ground vehicles and airborne systems communicate, transmit, and receive radio frequency communications.
The Army matured a manufacturing process using a special class of engineered materials known as metaferrites to make an ultra-thin wideband antenna. The antenna conforms to curved surfaces, making it ideal to integrate in unmanned aircraft systems, rotary wing aircraft, and ground vehicles.
