This report describes progress made during the 12th quarter of this R and D program and highlights the current status of the research. We are especially pleased to report that during this period we developed a significantly-improved design for the Rotated Aperture Waveguide Sidewall-Emitting Antenna RAWSEA. The new design offers two key advantages over its predecessors 1 a lower profile shallower depth than any of the other HPM-capable leaky-wave antennas investigated under this program, even including previous shallow-depth RAWSEAs and 2 a simplified design procedure for the leaky-wave grill. Note This is the last of the periodic Quarterly Reports to be submitted by SARA under the overall 37-month program. The Final Report due next month is currently under preparation.
