Abstract : The accomplishments of a research program on reactive-wall corner reflectors are summarized. The use of a reactive wall on one face of a trihedral reflector to provide same-sense circular polarization response was investigated. Two corner reflector models were tested and found to perform as expected. Computer programs were developed to provide for efficient computation of the CP response of reactive-wall designs and to provide for computer optimization of reactive wall designs. Three computer-optimized designs were found to have near-maximum response over the appropriate range of incidence angles. (Author)
