A preliminary study of advanced radiating elements for a dual band reflectarray antenna is presented. The resulting antenna has properties of reduced weight and thickness, and it can be employed as the ground station antenna for an ultralight UAV in the framework of a research program on a platform for emergency radio services: it can be easily mounted (stowed) on the roof of a vehicle and deployed when in operation.
