Abstract : This patent discloses a compact and integrated high-gain radar augmented system, including: a cylindrical microstrip receive antenna mounted on a cylinder for providing nominal omni-directional coverage, a transmit antenna similar to the receive antenna mounted on the same cylinder, isolating radio-refquency (RF) absorbing means located between the two antennas, and a high gain amplifier located within the body of the cylinder and connected to the two antennas. The entire assembly can be covered by an RF radome for component protection.
