This report describes progress during the 8th quarter of this program and summarizes the current status of the research. Technical activities this period included investigation and application of a simple but clarifying wave-mapping methodology that provides guidance in making more-effective use of curved platform surfaces. This results in conformal designs that provide both higher gain and greater peak power handling. In particular, this design perspective steered us to a notable success during this period, with the design of a CAWSEA that can deliver superior gain while conforming to the same radius cylinder as an earlier, standardrecommended design.
