  abstract =     "One of the challenges in engineering design is
                 adapting a set of created designs to a change in
                 requirements. Previously we presented two four-arm,
                 symmetric, evolved antennas for NASA's Space Technology
                 5 mission. However, the mission's orbital vehicle was
                 changed, putting it into a much lower earth orbit,
                 changing the specifications for the mission. With
                 minimal changes to our evolutionary system, mostly in
                 the fitness function, we were able to evolve antennas
                 for the new mission requirements and, within one month
                 of this change, two new antennas were designed and
                 prototyped. Both antennas were tested and both had
                 acceptable performance compared with the new
                 specifications. This rapid response shows that
                 evolutionary design processes are able to accommodate
                 new requirements quickly and with minimal human
