Naval or land vehicles communicate increasingly. The objective of the project is to study the problem of inserting antenna functionality into a composite structure in two ways:
- Creation of a composite structure with antenna functionality (use of meta-materials)
- Integration of multiple antennas onto a single wall of composite material.
This study is used to initiate a technological breakthrough for antenna devices and their integration as well as optimizing the antenna architecture systems.
Ultimately, it will create a composite demonstration model of significant size, integrating multiple antennas.
The target markets are both civilian and military and the consortium partners are recognized in their field of expertise and their market segment.
