Abstract : Requirements for an S-band Conformal Array Antenna are presented. The high gain antenna is designed to receive from a satellite at scan angles as large as 60 degrees. Development status of low loss printed circuit techniques in the areas of array aperture, phase shifter, transmission line, combiner, and array controller is discussed. Loss budget is calculated. Planned study tasks are presented. (Author)
