Body-mounted communications systems are often limited by the effects the human body has on antenna performance. This new approach mitigates these negative effects by exploiting physiological properties in a novel configuration that places the antenna in close proximity to the skin.
A new approach, developed and demonstrated by scientists at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), uses the body as part of the antenna design to make low profile body-mounted antennas a reality. This antenna bridges the gap between the range that is achieved by Bluetooth and traditional radio or 3G/4G solutions.
