Abstract

Reconfigurable dipole chaff elements for the remote passive detection of chemical agents are presented in this paper. Each chaff element consists of a metallic reference dipole, and a detection dipole with a switch that changes conductivity in the presence of a chemical analyte. In the absence of an analyte, both dipoles are resonant at the same frequency; however, when the analyte is present, the resonance frequency of the detection dipole shifts. This shift in frequency is remotely detected via a RADAR system.
