Radome integrated slotted waveguide antennas
XI International Conference on Antenna Theory and Techniques (ICATT 2017), Kyiv (Ukraine), pp.46-49 (2017)

S.S. Sekretarov and D.M. Vavriv

The development of slotted waveguide antennas with an integrated radome is discussed. The integrated radome is intended to improve the resistance of slotted-waveguide antennas against complex environmental conditions and to extend application areas of the antennas. Efficient approaches to the design, simulation, and fabrication of such antennas are considered. The development of a single plane monopulse Ku-band circular array is presented as an example of the implementations of such approaches. The antenna test results are presented to verify the design, simulation, and manufacturing solutions proposed.
