Abstract

EMAG Technologies, Inc. (Ann Arbor, MI) is responding to a US Special Operations Command solicitation for a Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) certified Ka-Band antenna. The solicitation requests the development and integration of a WGS-certified, low-visibility, small-form-factor commercial and military capable Ka-band spread spectrum antenna (KSSA) including the software for the modem to support Ka Spread Spectrum. The material solution will be similar in size/configuration to the existing Ka-band spread spectrum antennas and will provide maximum flexibility based upon the medium (e.g., airborne, ground and/or maritime) and satellite architecture (e.g., commercial Ka, commercial Ka and/or DoD Ka) available to SOF to execute assigned missions. The proposed solution with utilize EMAG's novel Vertically Integrated Scalable Antenna Tile (VISAT) technology.
