      Is that $1.29 million?? If that is from Dec. 20, why was there no press release? Maybe the Navy wants to keep it quiet?

      "Printed Wideband MetaMaterial Antennas For Ballistic Panels" What the hell is that???

      Hopefully, Doug will mention this in the next letter.

      Thanks for posting.

        Need: Develop antenna designs and manufacturing processes for antennas embedded into
        composite materials of various Navy platforms without compromising performance. Specifically,
        ultrawideband, light-weight, rugged antenna structures embedded into ballistic panels are needed that will be mounted onto vehicles for next-generation Joint Counter Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Device -Electronic Warfare (JCREW) systems for reducing the antenna signature of the vehicle or ship.

        Value to the Warfighter: Creating additional functionality to ballistic panels, reduction in the number
        of antenna structures and components required for counter warfare and communication applications and a reduction of the vehicle target profile. Ships structures will benefit from reduced antenna topside signature, reduced topside weight and lower center of gravity, resulting in greater stability at sea and weight savings.

        Operational Gap: Currently, antenna structures needed for different band requirements are mounted
        on the outside of the vehicle, creating a larger signature for the vehicle and adding cost and complexity to thesystem. The numerous antenna structures may interfere with each other and increase the target profile.

        Customer Specifications: Ultrawideband (mid-low frequency (LF) band to 8 GHz), high efficiency,
        low-profile and integrated into ballistic panel without compromising ballistic protection.
        Technology Description: Printed antenna elements implementing metamaterial design elements
        incorporated directly into the ballistic panel. Applied Nanotech, Inc.(ANI) has developed ink and paste formulations based on metal nano-particles, including copper (Cu), silver (Ag), nickel (Ni) and aluminum (Al), which can be printed onto various surfaces using a variety of printing techniques, including ink-jet printing. Dielectric formulations are also available. University of Tennessee/Knoxville and Villanova University have extensive experience with metamaterial antenna designs and can characterize the antennas using
        well-equipped RF test labs.
