Current methods of designing and optimizing antennas by hand are time and labor intensive, limit complexity, and require significant expertise and experience.? AI search algorithms can overcome these limitations by automatically searching the design space and finding effective solutions that are closer to limits imposed by physics.? For example, our algorithms have discovered counter-intuitive antenna designs that out-perform traditionally designed systems.? While optimization modules are commonly available in commercial RF CAD tools, they are typically simple parametric methods, and no system yet offers an antenna synthesis capability.? We discuss the antenna synthesis system we are developing and its use in a variety of applications,? including a project that produced antennas that flew in space on NASAĆ¢??s Space Technology 5 (ST5) mission.
