The project AhEAD - Advanced dEsign and testing of a polArimetric X-band antenna for avionic weather radar, aims at designing and testing a polarimetric avionic radar antenna operating at X band for weather characterization and classification. After the requirements have been defined, the project will identify the best solution of the antenna configuration in terms of technology and architecture by examining the performances of different solutions. The antenna will be designed and a breadboard will be manufactures and tested to evaluate the expected performances. A technological roadmap for full device development will be identified.

This is a collaborative project led by Rockwell Collins UK Ltd (RCUK), together with Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), to address the requirements and research challenges set by the SBRI/TSB call for GNSS Antennas in full. Benefiting from the QMUL team’s long term and extensive experience and expertise in GNSS antennas, we plan to investigate innovative solutions, two in circular polarised design and one in linear polarised design, for the compact antenna element to operate in the multiple GPS/Galileo bands. The technology underpinning our solutions has already been developed within the QMUL team with a total control of IPR. We also plan to design a novel compact 2D antenna array based on the antenna elements developed to provide the controlled reception pattern antenna configuring capability for significant mitigation against jammers and interference. In addition, we will consider a range of system level issues, such as low SWaP (Space, Weight and Power) applications and R-GNSS (Robust Global Navigation Satellite System), especially the impacts of operating platform and human body on the developed antennas when interfaced with the GNSS receivers and the issue of Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) location, based on RCUK’s extensive Military and Commercial Systems application, product and customer experience. RCUK is currently active in several UK and European GNSS study programmes, including the PERMIT programme for the UK Space Agency. The proposed project will be conducted by a CAPABLE team and managed by utilising the existing well established Program Management and commercial organisation at RCUK. The output of the project will include the results of the proof of concepts investigations and the Final Report covering all the de-risking activities and a business exploitation plan.

One of the most important strategic sectors in which Europe is developing, integrating and delivering high-quality products is the transportation domain. Here, high-class safety-related products as e.g. airplanes, cars and trains have a huge market impact. More and more of the market value of these vehicles is gained by embedded systems inside these products, and the number and importance of these embedded systems is steadily growing. One of the most important enablers to assure the quality of embedded systems is the application of powerful validation and verification (V&V) technologies accompanying the embedded systems development process. Unfortunately, the V&V technologies already in industrial use are still too expensive while often not effective enough. MBAT will provide European industry with a new leading-edge V&V technology in form of a Reference Technology Platform (MBAT RTP) that will enable the production of high-quality and safe embedded systems at reduced cost in terms of time and money. This will be made possible by a new and very promising approach in which model-based testing technologies will be combined with static analysis techniques. Besides this combination, a further new approach is to use (and re-use) specially designed test & analysis models as basis for model-based V&V. This advanced model-based V&V technology will lead to a more effective and at the same time cost-reducing approach compared to traditional ones. In addition, MBAT RTP will be connected to other ARTEMIS RTPs to extend existing platforms. Developed by industrial key players (large companies and SMEs) in this domain and supported by leading research partners, the MBAT RTP will be of high value for the European industry, providing very effective means to assure utmost quality embedded systems at reduced costs.
