Abstract
Due to the limited space and the need for flush mounting charactistics, a new and novel series of antenna systems for communications and ECM is proposed. It is proposed to use dielectromagnetic (DM) materials to miniaturize antennas and for RF DM lens to focus the RF signals into the below the surface antennas. An Astron pioneered subminiature direction finding system using DM materials, will be modified and further improved to permit its operation in a flush mounting submarine perescope system. The result is a smaller communication and ECM antenna covering much wider bandwidths than previously considered a possibility.
