Abstract : A dielectric waveguide is used as a connecting medium in a rotary joint transmitting waveguide energy in the 3 mm region. The dielectric waveguide is fastened within a ball bearing race to provide relative motion between the gimballed and stationary waveguide structure. Launch horns are used to enhance transmission through said dielectric waveguide.
