Wideband Planar (HDTV) Antenna
Project Award Date: 11-24-2001
This technology provides for improvement of existing antennas, improving reception of digital tv broadcasts, especially in distant fringe areas or locations without a clear path to a transmitting tower. The planar antenna provides a high degree of multipath interference rejection and extremely wide antenna bandwidth characteristics, allowing an unusually wide range of frequencies to be received with a single antenna. This antenna could be adapted for use in a variety of communication and radar system applications.
