Abstract
A rugged design of high power, high gain, low-loss transmitter with low profile is proposed to develop and test in Phase I. The design is based on self-focusing effect of surface waves leaking from a tapered, multi-wavelength-long, slow-wave structure. High directivity of the antenna is provided by coherent spatial interference of these waves enhanced by a horn, bandgap segmentation of the structure, and stacking of the structures into an array. The design is capable to handle very high power and deliver circular polarization. It is integrated with window and electromagnetically-tunable materials for steering with quadrupole static fields superimposed externally.
