Abstract : The rapid designs and developments of a new ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna are needed for imaging radar technologies for deployment in small unmanned air and ground vehicles for a variety of US Army applications. In this research, the design and development of a new UWB antenna is investigated. Bio-inspired optimization techniques such as particle swarm optimization and full-wave numerical techniques are utilized to optimize all desired antenna parameters in this report.
