Press Release

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), has been awarded a research program from the U.S. Army to develop a low profile and broadband antenna system to facilitate aircraft to satellite communications.

PSI is developing a broadband metamaterial-based antenna system to enable satellite communications across the entire Ku, K and Ka-band of frequencies (10-40 GHz). The system will be high gain, broadband and have an electrically small footprint by utilizing novel metamaterial concepts.

Development of a low profile, high gain, and ultrawide bandwidth antenna system for satellite and airborne platforms is significant to both DoD and commercial customers. PSI’s technology will enable platform-agnostic communications while simultaneously reducing the size and weight of the communications system.
