Abstract:

The incorporation of polarization diversity in future radar and communication systems is considered. The advantages of using dual circularly polarized antennas for functional control of polarization is emphasized. Applications of polarization techniques are developed into a powerful method of evaluating axial ratio characteristics of antennas. A novel continuous phase shifter is developed which illustrates the use of circular polarization to achieve efficient frequency translation.
