Abstract:

Investigations were made in an effort to develop new information on antenna systems that eventually might be useful for Air Force ECM systems. The theoretical investigations of surface-wave antennas and leaky-wave antennas are considered first, followed by discussion of a technique for determining the smoothest aperture distribution that will give a specified radiation pattern for any large aperture antenna. Next, a number of different antennas designed on a leaky-wave basis are considered, followed by a discussion of other types of antennas, including frequency-independent-types. Finally, ridge-waveguide directional couplers, which can be very useful in ECM antenna systems, are considered. Author
