Abstract:

This report describes the study of a dual reflector microwave antenna system performed by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lincoln Laboratory. The objectives of the study were to 1 develop a computer program which would define the contours of the reflectors to achieve optimum system gain over a given scan range, and 2 develop a computer program to calculate the secondary patterns and gain of the dual reflector system. The computer programs have been written. Significant improvement in performance of the dual reflector system has been demonstrated. Program results are discussed.
