Abstract:

The overall objective of this research is to develop antenna and sensor systems that will meet the Air Forces ever-increasing demand for reduced cost, size, weight, and power CSWAP while maintaining or increasing system functionality. This basic research effort consists of several sub-tasks that use analytical and numerical methods to examine the interaction of metamaterials and antennas, topics in transformation optics, and performance limitations of antennas on artificial magnetic grounds and unmanned aircraft systems UAS. This interim report summarizes the first 20 months of a three year effort.
