Abstract : A new type of thin-walled dielectric loaded antenna which is capable of flush mounting to almost any surface contour. This very thin wrap-around antenna consists essentially of 2 modified cavity-backed slot radiators, spacially positioned 180 deg. apart. Typically, a stripline feed network is used to couple the microwave energy to the individual radiating slots. A plurality of plated through holes define the boundary for the strip-line feed network.
