Calculating the mutual coupling between antennas on vehicles using full-wave simulations requires a vast amount of computer resources due to the electrical size of the structures. We therefore propose an alternative and approximate method to determine mutual coupling between antennas on vehicles for the case where there is line-of-sight (LOS) between the antennas. The proposed method is based on approximating the mutual coupling between LOS antennas on vehicles as near-field transmission… Expand

TLDR
It is found that the presented method to reduce out-of-band mutual coupling of linearly polarized rectangular microstrip antennas is hardly affected by the distance of the antennas, which makes it useful for the design of shared aperture antennas. Expand
