In this paper we present the application of artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) ground planes to low-profile resonant cavity antennas. The antennas are formed by the ground plane and a metallodielectric electromagnetic band gap (MEBG) array that acts as a partially reflective surface (PRS). A microstrip patch is used as a feeder within the cavity. The profile of the antenna is reduced to half by virtue of employing the AMC ground plane instead of the PEC.
