In order to provide efficient spatial summation of radiated power and reduce the transversal dimensions of continuous-wave radar antenna system a concept of transmitting antenna shaped as a circular array is proposed. It is designed as a ring of radiators placed around a single aperture of receiving antenna. The problem of optimal size selection for such an antenna system in terms of maximum gain and geometrical dimensions minimization is solved. The antenna radiation pattern is analyzed, and the side lobes level estimated.
