    The difficulty in reliably and efficiently detecting and locating buried unexploded ordnance (UXO) is a concern for the military. Tagging munitions and ordnance items before they are fired or launched would allow for a significantly more efficient means of locating buried UXO. Munition tagging can be accomplished by employing existing passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag technology, s... View full abstract»

    Composite right-/left-handed (CRLH) transmission-line (TL) metamaterials, with their rich dispersion and fundamental right-/left-hand duality, represent a paradigm shift in electromagnetics engineering and, in particular, for antennas. This paper presents an overview of the most practical leaky-wave and resonant CRLH antennas, which all exhibit functionalities or/and performance superior to prior ... View full abstract»

  • World-wide lightning location using VLF propagation in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide

    Worldwide lightning location (WWLL) using only 30 lightning sensors has been successfully achieved by using only VLF propagation in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide (EIWG). Ground propagation or mixed "sky" and ground propagation is avoided by requiring evidence of Earth-ionosphere waveguide dispersion. A further requirement is that the lightning strike must be inside the perimeter defined by the li... View full abstract»

  • Experimental analysis of detection and localization of multiple emitters in multipath environments

    An effective way for the joint detection and localization of multiple RF transmitters in a multipath environment is to enumerate the number of paths using the minimum-description-length information-theoretic algorithm, and to then measure the angle of arrival of each path, using an antenna array with a high-resolution direction-finding algorithm, such as MUSIC. The possible propagation paths are t... View full abstract»

  • Synthesized-reference-wave holography for determining antenna radiation characteristics

    Synthesized-reference-wave holographic techniques offer relatively simple and cost-effective measurement of antenna radiation characteristics and reconstruction of complex aperture fields using near-field intensity (power) pattern measurement. The near field is over-sampled. The phase is obtained indirectly, using the reference signal shifted linearly with the position of the probe. These methods ... View full abstract»

  • Parallel in-core and out-of-core solution of electrically large problems using the RWG basis functions

    Currently, the problem size that can be solved in reasonable time using the Method of Moments is limited by the amount of memory installed in the computer. This paper offers a new development that not only breaks this memory constraint, but also maintains the efficiency of running the problem in-core. In this paper, highly efficient parallel matrix-filling schemes are presented for parallel in-cor... View full abstract»

    A new technique for the design of broadband circular switched parasitic arrays (SPAs) for portable DVB-T receiver applications in the VHF/UHF bands is presented in this paper. Two switched parasitic arrays are presented, consisting of an active central element and a uniform ring of five parasitic elements. At any given time slot, only one parasitic element is open- circuited, while the rest remain... View full abstract»

  • A novel portable bipolar near-field measurement system for millimeter-wave antennas: construction, development, and verification

    As new antenna designs require higher frequencies and smaller sizes, traditional large-scale antenna measurement systems become ill-suited for such measurements. External mixing, room-sized chambers, and expensive test equipment add large costs and burdens to antenna measurement systems. A smaller and more cost-effective system is presented in this paper. Using the bipolar planar scanning techniqu... View full abstract»
