Electromagnetic antennas are a vital and ubiquitous technology in modern communication systems and a multitude of other applications. With a long history, research and development continues to create novel antennas and to improve their designs. The challenges of nextgeneration communication systems still drive much of this work. For example, systems that plan to use continuously moving satellites in constellations or high-altitude platforms will need sophisticated ground-based user antennas to…
