In this paper the concept of limiting Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) is presented. The design of a reconfigurable FSS equipped with PIN diodes, aimed at the protection of a radar receiver from high power impinging electromagnetic waves is outlined and verified against the measurement results of a hardware demonstrator.
