Abstract : Through the examination of both unorthodox and traditional techniques, a Ku band reflector antenna with offset monopulse feed was developed to meet certain requirements. In elevation, the requirement was maximum gain at 0 degrees elevation angle, with gain falling off from the maximum no sharper than the cosecant squared of the elevation angle. In azimuth, the requirement was low sidelobes; consequently the dish was offset fed.
