Abstract : A large, electronically scanned array antenna has been developed to meet the requirements of the airborne radar sensor for the PAVE MOVER system. This antenna is capable of performing in three modes; full aperture transmit and receive, two section elevation interferometer on receive, and three section space diverse azimuth interferometer on receive. Dual feeds provide illuminations for low azimuth sidelobes in all modes, and ferrite phase shifters are used to scan the beams and effectively select the mode of operation.
