Resumen:
Un centro de transferencia de tecnología de Reino Unido especializado en comercializar investigación de defensa está licenciando una antena de alto rendimiento que se lleva puesta en el cuerpo para aplicaciones en los campos de comunicaciones y guerra electrónica. Gracias a su pequeño tamaño, estas antenas pueden integrarse de diversas formas en la ropa o en las correas de una mochila o radio. Los ensayos de los prototipos realizados en interior y exterior a una distancia de 50 mm han demostrado un rendimiento excelente. La empresa busca proveedores de productos de seguridad y defensa con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia y desarrollar un producto comercial.

UK-developed body worn antenna available for licence
Summary:
A technology transfer organisation in the UK that specialises in the commercialisation of defence research is licensing high performance body worn antenna for electronic warfare and communications. Due to their small size the antennas could be integrated in various ways such as into a vest, or on the straps of a backpack or radio.
The company is looking to offer a license agreement to security and defence related product suppliers to develop into commercial product.
Description:
Electronic warfare equipment has traditionally employed large vertical omnidirectional antennas. However, they present operational challenges for their users as they are low gain, highly visible, and can limit manoeuvrability in operational environments. This new body worn antenna system overcomes these limitations, increases performance and reduces cost. Developed by the UK Ministry of Defence, this new system comprises multiple directional antennas and represents a step change in the performance of body worn antenna technology. It uses multiple distributed higher-gain directional antennas to reduce the Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) requirements while increasing the total system performance. Due to their small size the antennas could be integrated in various ways such as into a vest, or on the straps of a backpack or radio.
Indoor and outdoor testing of prototypes from just 50mm in length have shown excellent performance. Multiple systems have been designed and tested which cover frequencies from 300 MHz to 6 GHz, with development continuing towards higher frequencies.
This configuration maximises radiation efficiency which enables a higher power on target, greater range, and/or longer battery endurance/lower weight depending on the system drivers.
This novel body worn antenna system has numerous applications in defence and security, search and rescue and other specialist civilian applications.
The company is looking to offer a license agreement to security and defence related product suppliers.
Advantages and Innovations:
¿ Higher and more consistent gain
¿ Higher power on target, greater range, and/or longer battery endurance
¿ Greater robustness and less prone to snagging
¿ Low manufacturing costs owing to simple design
¿ Discrete antenna reduces visual signature
Stage of Development:
Available for demonstration
IPs:
Patents granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patent granted in UK and applied for in USA, Europe, Canada, and Australia.
