Abstract
Proposed work envisions development of high-rejection filters and smart reconfigurable antennas using MEMS switches. Adaptive feature of the proposed antenna provides higher S/N ratio and extends range for surface-to-surface communications. Tunable high-rejection filters lend themselves easily to software defined radios.
