This book aims at describing the wide variety of new technologies and concepts of non–standard antenna systems reconfigurable, integrated, terahertz, deformable, ultra–wideband, using metamaterials, or MEMS,  etc, and how they open the way to a wide range of applications, from personal security and communications to multifunction radars and towed sonars, or satellite navigation systems, with space–time diversity on transmit and receive. A reference book for designers  in this lively scientific community linking antenna experts and signal processing engineers.
