—A new modeling method for representing distributed scattering centers in wide-angle synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is presented. The proposed multipeak model approximates amplitudes of localized image peaks that typically appear at a single pixel or as an in-line set of pixels in a SAR image. In this way, the multipeak model is an improvement over existing(More)
Gain and bandwidth metrics of broad-band low-profile antennas severely deteriorate when they are placed conformally onto the conductive skins of air, sea, and ground platforms. This detrimental effect is primarily due to out-of-phase reflections from the conductive body interfering with the antenna's self radiation. Furthermore, lateral waves launched by(More)
