We propose a completely metal gratis antenna, developed from modified polymer textile. The antenna operating in the UWB range is lightweight, low cost, rugged and can be ambidextrously positioned under a cloud environment. The judiciously designed antenna can be easily amalgamated or sewn into wearable apparels suggesting its strong candidature in green symbiotic cloud communications. The short pulse UWB transmission capabilities of designed antenna provide benefits such as low probability of intercept, good resistance to multipath fading in addition to its low visual profile. A tensile strength of about 60 mPa and a high operating temperature of 300 °C allow the antenna to be soldier mounted under frequent physical abrasion. With a VSWR less than 2 and an operational efficiency of about 55 %, in the 5.5-6.5 GHz range, the proposed modified polymer textile antenna (MPTA) validates its usage as a viable option in a plethora of cloud computing architectures.
