This communication investigates the application of metamaterial absorber (MA) to waveguide slot antenna to reduce its radar cross section (RCS). A novel ultra-thin MA is presented, and its absorbing characteristics and mechanism are analyzed. The PEC ground plane of waveguide slot antenna is covered by this MA. As compared with the slot antenna with a PEC ground plane, the simulation and experiment results demonstrate that the monostatic and bistatic RCS of waveguide slot antenna are reduced significantly, and the performance of antenna is preserved simultaneously.
