A method for calculation of the parameters defining the antenna reflector geometry was proposed to obtain the directivity pattern of a given configuration in remote region. A parallel program of finite-dimensional minimization was used. The results of modeling were presented.

    In this study, the authors propose a low complexity detector for the generalised space shift keying (GSSK) in large-scale multiple-input-multiple-output systems. To be concrete, they propose a sparse K-best (SK) detector based on the breadth-first category of sphere detector (referred to K-best...

    A new type of primary feed antenna for plane sheet metallic reflectors is introduced. Reflector dimension can be reduced by 46% compared to a half-wave dipole feed when the directivity, beamwidth, and front-to-back ratio are fixed at 7.6 dBi, 100°, and 15.5 dB. © 2002 Wiley Periodicals,...

    The use of printed reflectarrays as permanent scatterers in SAR interferometry is investigated. The required feature of a backscattered field in a fixed direction of incidence is obtained as in the usually employed corner-reflectors, with a more stable and flat structure. A 10-GHz prototype has...

    Screws are often used to fasten the main reflector of a reflector antenna to its support structure. The screw heads may then cause bumps in an otherwise smooth reflector surface. Thereby, they disturb the reflected fields and cause increased sidelobes. In this paper, a perturbation theory is...

    The Genetic Algorithm (GA) optimization technique is applied to the optimization of a profiled corrugated horn, designed as a feed for a space-borne remote sensing reflector-antenna system. In addition to using the standard GA (SGA) optimization technique, a profiled corrugated horn is also...
