Paper Abstract

An electromagnetic (EM) missile launched from a hyperboloidal lens has been investigated experimentally. The system includes a hyperboloidal lens made of wax and a V-conical antenna (with a 30 degree(s) apex angle) located at the focal point of the lens. As expected, the lens system performs like an aperture field similar to that from a parabolic reflector. Both the measurement and simulation show that the EM missile launched from the hyperboloidal lens has a slow rate of energy decay and a waveform consisting of a pair of opposite pulses--properties similar to those of a parabolic reflector.
