5. A radio frequency rotary coupler, comprising:
a stator including (a) a first stator circuit layer including a primary stator power divider (SPD), (b) a second stator circuit layer including at least one secondary SPD, (c) at least one tertiary SPD, (d) first stator coaxial feeds coupling the primary SPD and the at least one secondary SPD, and (e) second stator coaxial feeds coupling the at least one secondary SPD and the at least one tertiary SPD;
a rotor including (a) a first rotor circuit layer including a primary rotor power divider (RPD), (b) a second rotor circuit layer including at least one secondary RPD, (c) at least one tertiary RPD, (d) first rotor coaxial feeds coupling the primary RPD and the at least one secondary RPD, and (e) second rotor coaxial feeds coupling the at least one secondary RPD and the at least one tertiary RPD; and
a dynamic capacitive ring coupling the stator and the rotor via the at least one tertiary SPD and the at least one tertiary RPD.
