Abstract
The design of a microstrip array antenna is examined from analytical and experimental viewpoints. The behavior of individual circular patch microstrip elements is analyzed with respect to radiation pattern and input impedance. The elements are arranged in three different array configurations whose performances are presented. The first configuration is a 2 x 8 array constructed from elements operating in the TM sub 11 mode. This configuration is used as a baseline with which the performance of the other two configurations are compared. The second configuration is a 2 x 10 array constructed from TM sub 11 mode elements. The third configuration is a 2 x 8 array constructed from hybrid elements operating in both the TM sub 11 and TM sub 21 modes. The hybrid element was utilized to investigate the feasibility of lowering the sidelobes of the array at high scan angles from broadside. TRUNCATED
