Abstract:

The shallow-cavity crossed-slot antenna is a UHF radiator designed primarily for use on a high-speed aircraft operating as the airborne terminal in a satellite-to-air communications link. The requirements, design analysis and performance characteristics are described. The antennas shallow profile makes it attractive either as a paste-on or flush-mounted type radiator. Near-hemispherical radiation coverage is provided.
