REALIZATION OF A MATCHING REGION BETWEEN A RADOME AND A GROUND PLANE

By D. Sjoberg and M. Gustafsson

Abstract:
In order to reduce the monostatic signature of the junction between a radome and the metallic structure to which it is attached, a tapered resistive sheet can be used. In this paper, we describe an easy method to realize this tapering using geometric variations on a subwavelength scale, with a significant reduction of the number of processing steps as a result.
