Innovative, High-Performance, Antenna & RF Technologies

Enabling Your Advanced Communication and Radar Systems

For over 20 years AOE has been providing creative antenna and RF product  technologies for advanced communication and radar applications. Our  founders, Dr. Eric W. Lucas and Mr. Robert G. Schmier, created the company  in 1998. Before forming the company, both Dr. Lucas and Mr. Schmier worked  for 13 years at the Westinghouse/Northrop Grumman Corporation in the Low Observable Advanced Technology Aperture Group. Both have over 25 years of  experience and are experts at applying electromagnetic (EM) analysis tools  and techniques to provide leading edge designs. Armed with these tools and  years of experience, AOE provides:

  • System-level engineering to ensure our products meet your system  requirements. 
  • High performance active phased array antennas as a core strength.
  • Ultra-wideband, wide-scanning, polarization-diverse printed antenna  technologies.  
  • Leading-edge EM simulation tools with proven, highly accurate physics based modeling.  
  • Robust and flexible designs with quick prototyping and full testing  capability.  

AOE’s proprietary technologies and tools that can be employed to meet and  exceed your system-level requirements include: 

  • Ground, Sea, Air and Space-Based active array antennas for diverse  communication, radar, SIGINT, ELINT, COMINT, etc. applications
  • Highly efficient T/R Cells for active arrays 
  • 90% efficient RF power amplifiers 
  • Broadband, polarization-diverse patch, and metamaterial inspired  antennas and arrays 
  • Ultra-wideband, wide-scanning Vivaldi/notch arrays 
  • Low observable technologies 
  • Tunable & Broadband antenna technologies 
  • Body worn antennas 
  • Miniaturized, covert and specialized applications
  • RF component and antenna testing
