Development of Wideband, Dual Polarized L-Band Array Antenna for Digital Beam forming SAR

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

A novel printed antenna design concept to show that it is possible to achieve 50% or more antenna bandwidth. The main objective can be divided into following sub-goals: Design & Validate performance of an extra-wideband dual polarized wideband L-band radiating element. Extend design, fabricate, and test 8-element linear array.

Using analytical methods to conceptualization L-band antenna structures that offer potentials of wideband operation. Perform extensive computer simulations on these antenna structures for their RF performances. Select optimum design for final fabrication and testing.
