Abstract:

During the past several years there has been growing interest in developing ultra wideband RF systems. The wide variety of possible usages for such systems include countermeasures, electronic intelligence gathering, and target detection and identification. In these systems, one of the key elements is the antenna which allows the energy to be radiated and collects the return signal. Various approaches including cavity backed spirals, sinuous antennas, and ridged horns have been considered to achieve broad bandwidth. This paper describes a novel technique for designing an ultra wideband antenna by proposing a new TEM-type feed. Radar, Antennas, Ultra-wideband, Transmitter, Adaptive, Receiver.
