We pride ourselves on personal attention to our customers and their requirements. We provide unique and innovative product development, and creative designs and solutions to meet the most challenging requirements. MegaWave specializes in antenna designs for all platforms and applications covering frequencies from VLF through mm-Wave. We are a qualified government prime contractor, and have a demonstrated ability to work with large defense companies across disciplines to produce an integrated product.
Some Project Highlights
MegaWave is an industry leader in the design and development of body worn antennas. We have designed wearable antennas for frequencies from 30MHz to 3GHz. Host platforms include: civilian garments such as jackets; tactical vests; body armor vests such as SPEAR, Interceptor, Future Force Warrior and Land Warrior. We can integrate antennas into most garment types and other fabric-based items. Using our existing database of designs, we are able to quickly develop and customize a body worn antenna for a specific application.
MegaWave has designed, fabricated and delivered airborne, vehicular, UAV and body worn Direction Finding antennas for a number of customers. These antennas are typically designed and built to a customer’s individual requirements and to match the customer’s specific DF algorithms, in terms of the number of elements, element layout and frequency bands. MegaWave has a number of proprietary wideband elements operating in the VHF and UHF bands that can be customized for a specific application.
Examples of special MegaWave projects include antennas developed to support the Navy’s new Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite system, antennas developed to support IARPA’s HFGeo program, wideband fragmented apertures, genetically optimized antenna designs and numerous others. Under contract to special government and other customers, we have designed and delivered antennas for many unique applications. These have included disguised and covert antennas, antennas for Unattended Ground Sensors, inflatable, and unique deployable antennas. We value the privacy of our customers and would be pleased to discuss your specific requirements with you in confidence.
MegaWave has developed a number of wideband and multiband vehicular antennas operating in the VHF and UHF bands. New and existing designs for wideband and multi-band operation can be customized to meet customer specific requirements. Frequency coverage ranges from high HF through C-band.
MegaWave has developed and delivered portable HF/VHF/UHF groundwave path loss and received power measuring sets for near-earth, on-surface and buried antennas. We have also developed an innovative fast-running groundwave computer code for inhomogeneous and irregular terrain with and without obstructions such as trees, buildings and snow. This code accurately predicts near-earth propagation loss over a wide range of frequencies. Additional projects have included investigations of textile-based antennas and transmission lines as well as fragmented antennas.
MegaWave developed the Multi Polarization Antenna System in support of IARPA’s HFGeo program. The antenna operates in the HF band and provides orthogonal TM mode elements as well as a TE mode element. The antenna elements are less than 1/25 of the wavelength at its lowest operating frequency.
MegaWave has performed extensive design and research using buried and on-surface antennas that exploit the surface and lateral wave modes of wave propagation in support of DARPA’s Buried Unattended Ground Sensors (BUGS) program. Numerous buried antenna designs over several frequency bands through high UHF were analyzed to determine the best frequency/antenna combination capable of achieving the required performance for a BUGS system.
