Antenna with shaped lobe and high gain

Antenne à lobe formé et grand gain

Antenne mit geformter Strahlungskeule und hohem Gewinn

Abstract

L'invention comprenant un réseau conformé sur une surface de révolution de profil quelconque, qui comprend plusieurs génératrices (12) d'éléments rayonnants (13), se trouvant dans un plan passant par l'axe de révolution (Δ); tous les éléments rayonnants d'une même génératrice étant reliés à un seul point de commande. Application notamment au domaine des transmissions spatiales.
The invention comprises a shaped array on a surface of revolution of arbitrary profile, which comprises several generatrices (12) of radiating elements (13), lying in a plane passing through the axis of revolution ( DELTA ); all the radiating elements of a given generatrix are linked to a single control point. Application in particular to the field of space transmissions. <IMAGE>
