Paper Abstract

Recently there has been considerable interest toward designing `smart skin spiral antenna' for aircraft. These antennas when used for EW systems generally require multioctave frequency bandwidths to receive and/or transmit signals over a wide frequency range. In this paper a smart skin conformal antenna is designed which consists of a thin tunable dielectric sheet, interdigital transducer and notch filter and a chiral absorber.
