High-frequency antennas are critical to radio communications, allowing ground forces to broadcast across long distances and over geographic barriers such as mountains using relatively little energy. But their size can increase their vulnerability. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, could have a solution: Make the antenna platform itself part of the high-frequency transmitter.  The U.S. Office of Naval Research is funding the work of electrical engineering professor ...
