Abstract : The report describes a low-profile, all dielectric lightweight antenna array to replace the directional antenna for the AN/APN 169 Aircraft Station-Keeping Antenna. The array consists of eight (LEXAN) polycarbonate channel guide elements partially plated with copper enabling the antenna system to be reduced from the present 8 inches in height to less than 2 inches. Design data and radiation patterns are given for the individual elements as well as for the eight-element array. (Author)
