Abstract : The frequency scanned corner reflector antenna is a modified corner reflector antenna that incorporates a feeding technique to achieve monopulse or sequential lobing radiation patterns is one principal plane and one or more frequency-scanned beams in the other principal plane. Scanning of the beam of the corner reflector antenna for direction finding and tracking applications is accomplished without destroying the unique monopulse and sequential lobing capabilities of the antenna.
