Abstract


The MIMiCRA Project will investigate the ability of novel and emergent high impedance metamaterial surfaces to reduce mass, footprint and profile of low frequency and broadband antenna types (the latter being relevant to surveillance applications); gains in these parameters may alternatively or synergistically improve antenna operating performance characteristics. Antennas of reduced size and profile may also contribute to reducing the radar cross section and aerodynamic drag of aeronautic platforms, this is particularly relevant to low frequency communications antennas.
