Workshop 1.4
Artificial Magnetic Conductors

Mr. Victor C. Sanchez - Titan

Thu, 29 April 2004, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) ground plane and antenna technology will be discussed. Topics will include theoretical treatment for the Sievenpiper "thumbtack" structure, enhanced bandwidth structures, reconfigurable geometries, practical antenna implementation issues and novel AMC/antenna concepts. The tutorial is based on research conducted under the DARPA RECAP (Reconfigurable Aperture) program as well as current work for the Office of Naval Research.


Mr. Victor C. Sanchez - Titan

Mr. Sanchez is currently the Director of Antenna Systems at Titan - Aerospace Electronics Division in Greenbelt, Maryland. He is responsible for technical oversight of all antenna group projects and for maintaining and growing contract research and development activities in applied electromagnetics and advanced antenna technology. Additionally, Mr. Sanchez is principal investigator and program manager for an ONR project to develop low profile antennas based on active high impedance periodic bandgap structures. His group is currently working with several government offices and prime contractors to develop various novel, value-added antennas/systems. During his career, he has worked to develop analysis for and practical implementation of low-profile antennas based on high impedance periodic bandgap structures - including those utilizing unique artificial magnetic materials. Mr. Sanchez has also formulated theoretical and computational solutions for electromagnetics problems using method of moments and other numerical techniques. He has worked on the design, realization, integration, and test of a variety of antennas. Mr. Sanchez received his bachelor?s degree in 1986 and his master?s degree in 1988 from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He has been employed at Titan - Aerospace Electronics Division (formerly Atlantic Aerospace Electronics Corp.) since 1988. Mr. Sanchez is listed as co-inventor on several patents, and has published several papers on antennas and applied electromagnetics. He is a Senior member of the IEEE.
