N2 - Despite their low profile and competitive radiation characteristics, most of the devices in the corrugated leaky wave antenna family feature an unnecessary excess weight which result detrimental for current innovative applications, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), aircrafts or satellite antennas.
