Abstract:

The basic ground station antenna types used in the field today are listed. The advantages, disadvantages, and characteristics of various antennas are listed for the convenience of system engineers, but no attempt has been made either to describe thoroughly why each antenna exhibits certain characteristics or to single out any type as being the best, since this is a function of specific system requirements and tradeoffs. Many references are presented from some of the common technical journals, which can be used if one wishes to pursue further a particular aspect. The study discusses reflector-type antennas, lens-type antennas, array-type antennas, and includes a short discussion of monopulse vs conical scan techniques. Author
