    This tutorial paper deals with several aspects of basic electromagnetic theory that appear to be insufficiently appreciated a century and one-half after Maxwell published his well-known equations, and over a half-century since the MKS/SI system of units was introduced. New concepts have not been completely embraced, while older artifacts and anachronisms have lingered on. The main issues include p... View full abstract»

    Radio-frequency identification technology, based on the reader/tag paradigm, is quickly permeating several aspects of everyday life. The electromagnetic research mainly concerns the design of tag antennas having high efficiency and small size, and suited to complex impedance matching to the embedded electronics. Starting from the available but fragmented open literature, this paper presents a homo... View full abstract»

    Antennas operating from geostationary satellites are often required to give global-Earth coverage for telemetry and command signals as well as conventional communications traffic. As the number of satellites in geostationary orbit increases, it is important to minimize interference to neighboring satellites. This requirement means that the amount of co- and cross-polarized sidelobe power should be... View full abstract»

    The objective of this study was to analyze whether advanced simulation platforms provide the effectiveness, accuracy, reliability, and efficiency to predict impairment of mobile-phone RF performance under various usage patterns. The investigation was based on the mechanical CAD data of a commercial phone with two alternative antennas. Three significant hand positions were modeled and evaluated wit... View full abstract»

  • Near fields of resonant circular arrays of cylindrical dipoles

    The far fields of resonant circular arrays of cylindrical dipoles with only one or two dipoles driven have been examined in a number of recent works. The discrete currents on such arrays can be thought of as a slow standing or traveling wave. In the present paper, the near fields of such arrays are studied. In order to better understand the somewhat unusual behavior of the near fields, we first di... View full abstract»

    The design, development, and testing of a digital tracking array is described. The array operates at 2.4 GHz for tracking video and data from UAVs and other mobile transmitters. A monopulse tracking technique is used to keep the beam scanned to the direction of the incoming signal. The array is built entirely of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components. Calibration, measurement of patterns, and ... View full abstract»

    Modeling and simulation strategies for radar cross section (RCS) prediction are reviewed, and a novel FDTD-based virtual RCS prediction tool is introduced in this two-part paper. Part 1 is reserved for a tutorial review. Concepts and definitions related to RCS modeling are outlined. Analytical approaches, i.e., high-frequency asymptotics (HFA), as well as powerful time- and frequency-domain numeri... View full abstract»
