Paper Abstract

Conventional (i.e. passive) radar absorbing materials (RAM) have been in use now for over 50 years, but it is only with recent advances in conducting polymer composite materials that active RAM has become practicable. Techniques for utilizing these new materials in reconfigurable electromagnetic, or 'smart,' surfaces are reviewed, with due emphasis being given to the problem of system integration. The discussion is complemented by modelled and measured performance data on several smart surface configurations.
