An electric field antenna that conforms to the plane or curved surface of an underwater vehicle or structure has attraction in situations where a trailing wire or other projection is not permissible for reasons of streamlining, or avoidance of entanglement. The author is involved in the study of ELF and VLF E-M wave communications under such conditions and planar disc and cylindrical monopole antennas have been examined in detail with a view to determining approximate mathematical models which may be used to predict complete near-field and far-field electric and magnetic field patterns in water of any conductivity.
