Abstract:The government has a current requirement to develop antenna systems which enable significantly increased GPS signal levels at specified pointing angles within the terrestrial footprint covered by a GPS satellite. Current and past GPS antennas are designed to provide a nearly constant flux density… more
Abstract:The future net-centric military provides enhanced battlefield awareness through wireless links between unmanned aerial vehicles, high-speed aircraft, rotary-winged platforms, and soldiers on the ground. To support this, platforms must accommodate a variety of antennas, not to mention traditional… more
Abstract:SATCOM On-The-Move (OTM) is one of the greatest operational and tactical advantages our troops have. The SATCOM terminals available pose a number of practical constraints resulting in less than universal usage. Traditional reflectors are high profile and difficult to integrate on aircraft and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: FIRST RF proposes a two pronged, pragmatic approach intended to provide antenna solutions for both small and large UAS platforms operating in L/S/C & Ku bands. Larger aircraft, such as the global hawk, have relatively fast cruise speeds where extra drag incurred by external components… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposed research will develop and validate a pragmatic approach to modifying existing ground station antenna systems to mitigate the spectral congestion. Furthermore, this solution is a natural building block for future AFSCN ground station capability growth and can serve to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the nearly 36 years since the first NAVSTAR GPS satellite was launched, GPS has grown into one of the most important and widespread technologies used by modern military and civilian systems. While the legacy GPS constellation continues to provide support for most military applications,… more
Abstract:A multiband SATCOM terminal solution is identified conforming to low profile rotary wing aircraft constraints. The architecture incorporates commercially available RF electronics and components in a unique package that precludes manual reconfiguration to support alternate SATCOM datalinks. This… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed Phase I effort is to investigate the feasibility of a broadband High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) antenna system that is capable of handling power of 1000 MW over a wide bandwidth including mid VHF to L-Band. It is desirable that the antenna occupy minimal volume when… more
Abstract:FIRST RF Corporation proposes the development and integration of a low-cost, low-SWaP, Integrated System for Avoidance of Ice-producing Airborne Hazards (ISAIAH). This system will be lightweight (~15 lbs) and draw minimal prime power (less than 100W), but will dramatically widen the window of… more

Phased array systems allow for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation. Wide elevation patterns desirable… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: For decades, very low frequency (VLF) links have been an important part of Air Force"s worldwide logistics infrastructure and response-coordination capability. With an increasingly-global proliferation of nuclear capability, Air Force faces an urgent need to update legacy VLF… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The current lack of a simple, low-cost, and high bandwidth communication system on C2ISR (Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) aircraft prevents the Air Force from realizing the full capability of its airborne reconnaissance and surveillance assets. The… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: High speed communication channels and tactical data links are becoming increasingly important for both military and commercial applications. The need for high speed inter-flight communication and data transfer is validated by the existence of the Intra-Flight Data Link (IFDL) for the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The United States Air Force (USAF) has a need to upgrade communications systems on board Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicles (EELV"s).

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
