How do you design,develop, and pro-duce an airborne blade antenna to cover 30 to 2,000 MHz and achieve greatly improved performance, especially at the low end of the band for SINCGARS applications, while maintaining its small size for mounting on sub-sonic aircraft and helicopters? Astron has had a series of R&D and production programs over the past nine years, achieving miniatur-ized antennas for communications and Direction Finding (DF) Arrays for the U.K., US Army and Navy, Australia, and others for submarines, ships, UUV/UAV, aircraft and Land Mobile systems.
