Design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) is aimed at improving the product quality at the mean while reducing the cost and time to manufacture using some laid down structured approach. Antenna is a device which converts electronic signals into electromagnetic waves or vice versa. Microwave antennas used in Electronic Warfare (EW) applications are smaller in size to cater to the smaller wave length. DFMA is one of the few methods available which leads to design optimization on point of view of manufacturing. By adopting DFMA, the design of ridged horn antenna (RHA) is optimized against ease of manufacture and assembly upholding the functional requirement. The paper focuses on the application of DFMA to Electronic Warfare Antennas under development in an R&D environment where the quantity of production is limited and the desired design intends has to be strictly adhered to in a short time frame. The development of Ridged Horn Antenna using DFMA approach is discussed.
