  1. Reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RISs) are an emerging transmission technology to aid wireless communication. However, the potential of using RIS to mitigate directed energy weapons (DEW) is not widely recognized. In this paper, we propose to leverage RIS (based on spiral antenna elements) to aid the mitigation of high-energy radio-frequency (RF) sources applied to a DEW. For example, integrating a broadband circularly-polarized antenna system with RIS technology can successfully mitigate DEW attacks across a wide range of frequencies regardless of how the radio waves are polarized. We simulated a spiral antenna that operates within a frequency band of 1.3 GHz to 7 GHz with a 3-dB axial ratio bandwidth (ARBW) covering from 2 GHz to 7 GHz. Full-wave simulation results show the potential promising application of RIS for the mitigation of DEW attacks.
