Compact Broadband Antenna
The U.S. Navy seeks to commercialize U.S. Patent 6,667,721 (Compact broadband antenna).
SSC Pacific has developed a technology that uses a bicone antenna configuration as a feed transformer and exponentially tapered reflector fins to radiate the antenna’s energy (could be modified to a discone w/groundplane design). This permits a device to transmit and receive capability over a range of 130 MHz to 9.0 GHz (capable of improvements to over 10 GHz). Additionally, impedance matched to 50 ohms and this antenna can be omni-directional and vertically polarized.
