Low Profile, Very Wide Bandwidth Aircraft Communications Antennas Using Advanced Ground-Plane Techniques

DOD / NAVY
A new type of conformal antenna is proposed which is based on the realization of a magnetic current filament (MCF) radiating structure which work cooperatively with an electric conductor surface. Thus, by using a circular loop MCF element placed flat against an electric conductor, we can realize an extremely low profile monopole antenna. In contrast, electric current filaments produce a null field (i.e., they do not radiate)when placed flat against an electric conductor.
