Abstract:

Millimeter wave antenna technology has had a long history of development, and as millimeter wave systems evolve through planning to implementation, a significant amount of additional development work will be required. Millimeter wave antennas play a key role in the rationale for millimeter system designs because high spatial resolution can be achieved with modest physical dimensions. Reflector, lens, array, and horn technologies are surveyed. Multiple beam designs and adaptive processing antennas are described because these technologies afford high leverage opportunities to enhance electronic survivability and to extend communication capabilities. Ancillary components, such as radomes, are a necessary part of practical antenna designs and are discussed in some detail. Originator-supplied keywords include Array Antennas, Lens antennas, Multiple beam antennas, and Reflector antennas.
