Abstract : An antenna for mounting on a ground plane includes a dielectric substrate for mounting on the ground plane. A conductive patch dimensioned to a design frequency is positioned on the substrate. A frequency selective surface is mounted at a specific spacing above the conductive patch creating a Fabry-Perot cavity effect between the surface and the patch at the design frequency. A spacer can be included for maintaining the spacing between the patch and the frequency selective surface.
