Scientists from Queen Mary University London and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) are among members of a consortium using a £1.9 grant from the Technology Strategy Board’s Collaborative Research and Development Programme in the category “Design Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing” for leading-edge research into new aerospace antenna technologies. The three-year project, dubbed AMULET (Advanced Materials for Ubiquitous Leading-edge Electromagnetic Technologies) also includes commercial sector partners ERA Technology and its EM simulation firm, Vector Fields. The team will undertake research into artificial materials (metametals) and their application to emerging “smart” antenna design that will reduce mutual RF interference, weight, aerodynamic drag, cost, and system complexity for aerospace applications. Researchers will also work on key technologies underlying the next generation of broadband, multifunctional, adaptive, conformal antennas.
