The Department of Defense now has access to a portable antenna with tracking capability that can be deployed in places where these capabilities are traditionally limited.
With support from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program and the Air Force Research Laboratory, Alabama-based GATR Technologies developed a version of its inflatable antenna that can follow moving targets. Also known as GATR TRAC, the new antenna is relatively lightweight and has a low-stowage volume so it can be easily transported then quickly assembled.
