Abstract : The patent describes a lens system for antenna arrays. The circular symmetric bootlace lens is a system of focusing energy into a well colliminated beam. The system comprises a circular parallel plate lens and a circular array of elements. Energy is launched into the circular parallel plate lens and is collected by elements on the opposite side of the lens and then passes through equal length transmission lines to the circular array of elements where it is radiated.
