In satellite applications, a circularly polarized satellite antenna is desirable with a pattern that results in constant received power while the distance between the transmitter and the receiver is changing. The Circular Disk - Annular Ring (CDAR) antenna satisfies these requirements along with other requirements for the satellite antenna. The CDAR antenna is a combination of a Circular Disk and an Annular Ring patch antennas. In this thesis, a circularly polarized CDAR antenna that is fed from a single point is designed at the center frequency of 8.2 GHz. This antenna is investigated and optimized to ease the fabrication process. The design parameters are defined on this report and optimized by using an Electromagnetic Simulation software program. In order to verify the theoretical results, Circular Disk - Annular Ring Antenna is produced as a prototype. Measurements of antenna parameters, electromagnetic field and circuit properties are interpreted to show compliance with theoretical and simulation results. The values of deviation between theoretical and experimental results are also discussed.

Beam scanning Microstrip (BSMS) antenna is designed to work at center frequency of 10 GHz for using in the scanning applications of 9 GHz to 11 GHz band. The design parameters are defined and by using an Electromagnetic Simulation software program, the parameters are optimized. A Beam Scanning Microstrip Antenna is produced as a prototype and the measurement’s results are compared with theoretical results. In conclusion, the values of deviation between theoretical and experimental results are discussed.
Waveform design for pulse doppler radar
Ağırman, Handan; Severcan, Mete; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This study is committed to the investigation of optimum waveforms for a pulse doppler radar which uses a non linear high power amplifier in the transmitter. The optimum waveform is defined as the waveform with the lowest peak and integrated side lobe level, the narrowest main lobe in its autocorrelation and the narrowest bandwidth in its spectrum. The Pulse Compression method is used in radar systems since it is more advantageous in terms of the resolution. Among all pulse compression methods, the main focu...
Block transmissions on orthogonal carriers
Yazıcı, Ayhan; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Single Carrier Block Transmissions (SCBT) are located at the two opposite edges of block transmission concept. In this thesis a system which lies between OFDM and SCBT is proposed. The new system, namely Block Transmissions on Orthogonal Carriers (BTOC), can be considered as a hybrid form of OFDM and SCBT. BTOC system is investigated under the redundant filterbank precoders and equalizers framework. Peak to average power ratio (PAPR) of BTOC is formulate...
Investigation of superdirective antenna arrays
Baktır, Yasemin; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In some antenna applications, having high directivity while keeping the antenna dimensions small is desired, which can be obtained by use of superdirective arrays. Superdirective arrays have been popular in academic world since a superdirective array provides higher directivity than the uniformly excited antenna array of same length. In this thesis, superdirective arrays are investigated by making high precision numerical computations. Superdirective array element excitations, array factors and directivitie...
Design of an FM-CW radar altimeter
Yetkil, Yaşar Barış; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Frequency modulated continuous wave (FM-CW) radar altimeters are used in civil and military applications. Proximity fuses, automatic cruise control systems of cars, radar altimeter of planes are examples to these applications. The goal of this thesis is to present a method for altitude determination using an FM-CW radar. For this purpose principles of radars and FM-CW systems are studied and related subjects are inspected. After this inspection, algorithms for altitude determination are evaluated. Consequen...
