Abstract
Virtual EM is proposing a platform coupling technique for improving efficiency of electrically small antennas on ground, sea and air vehicles. The the proposed approach, a portion of the platform becomes the extension of the antenna and hence result in higher performance. Technique has been demonstrated already with the commercial automotive applications and a revised approach is proposed here.
