    Abstract

    A new and innovative antenna array, the Three-Dimensional Frequency-Independent Phased-Array (3D-FIPA), was developed by Penn State and is described in detail in this paper. This antenna has been entered into the patent process after much physical and computer modeling analysis. The 3D-FIPA can be designed to provide low grating lobes, low sidelobe levels, nearly constant gain, beamwidth, and impedance with a low Voltage Standing Wave Ratio over extremely large bandwidths. The full array maximizes use of physical volume required and can be built for HF through the microwave regions. The 3D-FIPA applies the log-periodic principle in a novel way to form multi-layer dipole arrays that maintain all electrical spacings and heights over a user-specified frequency range.
