Verus Research Antenna Design Aims for the Stars

Verus Research is proud of its first contract win with the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Sensors Directorate based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.  The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract will develop an antenna prototype for measuring space-based electromagnetic radiation in the very low frequency range.

The program includes a parametric antenna suitable for space flight that will measure wave excitation in the ionospheric space plasma.  The goal is to fly this antenna on the International Space Station.  Dr. J. Mark DelGrande, Verus Research Chief Technology Officer, said the award “represents a revolutionary step towards space in our ever-expanding antenna portfolio.”
