Abstract
ALL RF SYSTEMS HAVE UNDERGONE TREMENDOUS MINIATURIZATION DURING THE LAST FEW DECADES. HOWEVER, THE SIZE OF RF COMPONENTS, SUCH AS DUPLEXERS, FILTERS, MOLATORS HAVE UNDERGONE VERY LITTLE; WHILE THE ANTENNAS HAVE UNDERGONE VIRTUALLY NONE. THROUGH THE USE OF ASTRON'S NEWLY DEVELOPED DIELECTRIC/FERRITE ANTENNA LOADING TECHNIQUES AND RECENT ADVANCES IN SUPERCONDUCTIVITY, THERE IS NOW THE POSSIBILITY OF ACHIEVING OVER 50% ANTENNA MINIATURIZATION AT LITTLE LOSS IN EFFICIENCY.
