How do you design, develop, and produce an airborne blade antenna to cover 30 to 2000 MHz and achieve greatly improved performance, especially at the low end of the band for SINCGARS applications, while maintaining its small size for mounting on sub-sonic aircraft and helicopters?  Astron has had a series of R&D/Production program over the last nine years achieving miniaturized antennas for communications and Direction Finding (DF) Arrays for the U.K., US Army/Navy, Australia, and others for submarines, ships, UUV/UAV, aircraft and Land Mobile systems.
