Abstract : The experimental and theoretical investigations performed during this program indicate that wide angle scanning can be realized with linear arrays located on groundplanes and also located on a generatrix of a 20 deg cone. Scanning from broadside to 10 deg from endfire for the planar arrays and in a direction along the tip of the cone was obtained. Measured far-field patterns and impedances of the radiating elements were in very close agreement with predictions based on simplified theoretical models. (Author)
