Transcript NASA's contract for development of microstrip antennas on the Manned Maneuvering Unit, a component of the planned space station, has been awarded to a team of UH researchers. "The MMU is a Buck Rogers thing," Stuart Long, chairman of the electrical engineering department, said. "Astronauts will strap themselves into this big box-like module equipped with communications and propulsion in order to move and work in space outside the station" No matter what their position in the MMU, whether upside down or sideways, the men must have dependable antennas that permit a constant exchange with the space station on two way radio frequencies — one that transmits messages, and one that receives them. The problems presented by both circular polarization, a term which describes antennas that work no matter how they are oriented, and dual frequency communications have been resolved successfully. The problem that challenges Long and his team of researcher — Bill Richards, Don Wilton and David Jackson — is the development of a single printed circuit antenna that combines both concepts. The $60,000 one-year contact also asks the UH team to determine the optimum locations on the MMU for placement of the antennas. Long, a graduate of Rice and Harvard Universities, has been one of the leaders in developing new types of antennas since the mid-1970s. At that time, he and Liang Shen, a UH electrical engineering professor, worked with a team at the University of Illinois, which included Richards, to develop the microstrip antenna. A unique antenna, one of its most unusual features is that it has nothing which protrudes. It is a flexible, flat surface of copper only a few 1,000-of-an-inch thick that is flush mounted to become a part of whatever it's used upon. 160
