The object of this invention is to provide a monolithic radar antenna front end subsystem capable of being fully integrated in a dielectric waveguide transmission line. A further object of this invention is to provide a millimeter wave doppler radar front end which is smaller and less complex than the conventional metal waveguide systems, and which lends itself to conformal mounting while exhibiting presently-available radar front end units. The integrated radar front end system according to the present invention utilizes a standard dielectric transmission line to provide an isolator and an antenna which is combined with a non-reciprocal ferrite circulator thereby allowing the antenna to be used for both transmission and reception.
