High frequency system using a circular array


A transportable, resilient, high frequency system with a compact footprint is provided. The system may include a plurality of antenna elements arranged around a circle. A circular array provides a resilient radiation pattern that does not change based on the number of antennas in the array and is tolerant of errors in antenna placement. The gain of the system may be increased by increasing the number of antenna elements in the array to compensate for reduced efficiency of antenna elements having a radiating element with a length of less than half the wavelength of an operating frequency of the array.
