Abstract : A minimum-mean-square (MMS) formulation is employed in the synthesis of two space-fed E-scan antenna designs. Based on ray-tracing, the underlying mathematical model expresses the illumination of a primary radiation array as a linear function of the complex weights of a secondary radiation array. The MMS formulation leads to a linear system whose solution is the desired excitation weight vector solution.
