Abstract:

A novel multibeam antenna concept is described. This antenna concept is a generalization of the R-2R lens to permit a full circle of simultaneous beams from a circular or cylindrical antenna array. The angular doubling which characterizes the R-2R geometry, and which ordinarily restricts its applicability to a limited angular sector, is accommodated through the mapping of a full circle of array elements onto two full circuits of the lens structure. In this mapping, the perfect phase focusing of the R-2R geometry is maintained. Recent progress on practical design problems is presented. Author
