This study presents the design of a dual-band cavity-backed phased array antenna with wide-angle scanning capability in K/Ka bands for the geostationary (GSO)-fixed satellite service (FSS). To reduce the losses and mutual coupling, a novel antenna element similar to the cavity-backed Strip-Slot-Air-Inverted-Patch (SSAIP) is proposed as an element of designed array of 81 elements. Wide-angle scanning up to 60 degrees is achieved at both frequency bands of the operation. The developed antenna is suitable for seamless installation on both land and air vehicles for bi-directional SatCom systems.

A DUAL-POLARIZED WIDE-BAND PATCH ANTENNA FOR INDOOR MOBILE COMMUNICATION APPLICATIONS
Secmen, M.; Hizal, A. (2010-01-01)
This paper proposes the configuration of a dual polarized wide-band patch antenna system suitable for indoor mobile communication applications. This configuration consists of two patch antennas, which have different feed structures from classical patch antenna configuration. These antennas, which are separated by a thin absorber to have a good isolation, are fed independently to obtain dual polarization. The antenna structure is designed, simulated, manufactured and measured. The operation bandwidth spans 1...

A Monolithic Phased Array with RF MEMS Technology
Sağkol, Hüseyin; Topallı, Kaan; Ünlü, Mehmet; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Demir, Şimşek; Akın, Tayfun (2002-08-07)
This paper reports a monolithic phased array implemented using RF MEMS technology. The phased array is composed of a linear array of four patch antennas and a new phase shifter design, monolithically integrated into a glass substrate. The new phase shifter design consists of two sections: one continuous and one discrete phase shifter. Combination of these two types makes it possible to give continuous and large phase shifts at the same time. The phase shifter can provide a phase shift of about 95/spl deg/ c...
A Hybrid Antenna Element for Travelling Wave Dual-Plane Monopulse Slotted Waveguide Arrays
Gültepe, Gökhan; Doğan, Doğanay; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2018-12-10)
A novel antenna element for low loss and low-profile dual-plane monopulse arrays is proposed. The travelling wave array has both sum and difference distributions in azimuth. The designed element is the unit cell of an interleaved slotted waveguide array feeding wideband printed antennas via probes inserted into waveguides from the slots. The use of printed antennas enhances the narrow sidelobe and efficiency bandwidth of the closely-spaced slotted waveguide arrays by up to 20%. The unit cells are modelled a...
An Interleaved LTSA Array on a Waveguide Beamformer with Dual-Plane Monopulse
Gultepe, Gokhan; Dogan, Doganay; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2019-01-01)
A monopulse antenna array is designed by using a novel element combining wideband linearly tapered slot antennas (LTSA) with an interleaved, closely-spaced, travelling wave slotted waveguide array (TWSWA) similar to [1-3]. To decrease the deteriorating coupling between sum and difference rows in previous studies for monopulse operation, adjacent rows of interleaved arrays are designed to have the same amplitude distribution but different propagation constants. So, interleaved arrays generate two simultaneou...
