Abstract : The patent describes a reentry vehicle antenna which is comprised of a stripline slot antenna with the antenna element including a stripline circuit board with a radiating aperture fed by a conventional strip transmission line. A feedback circuit is provided to control the input impedance of the antenna while operating into an RF transparent window as the window depth varies due to erosion upon reentry.
