Abstract:

A beam scanning antenna system that uses a small, rapidly rotatable feed antenna to illuminate a large, fixed secondary collimating device, such as a reflector or electromagnetic lens, which in turn illuminates a large, fixed primary collimating device. The primary collimating device forms a narrow collimating beam that is reflected or transmitted into space. Rotation of the small feed antenna causes the beam to scan. Author
