There is a need for high gain antennas which are capable of rapid scanning and multibeam operations. The report presents a study of double-spherical Cassegrain reflector to ascertain whether this antenna is practical for these purposes. The aperture blocking, the spread of the field, and the phase and amplitude distributions are examined using geometric optical technique There is no single optimum condition, but it is shown that a proper combination of the subreflector and main reflector sizes and the position of the feed can indeed produce a promising antenna.
