Advances in conducting polymer composite materials are raising the prospects of realizing large area dynamically controllable microwave smart surfaces. Candidate structures for these are proposed and their characteristics are analyzed, with due regard to the problems of system integration. The discussion is complemented by modelled and measured performance data.
