Abstract

The design of a phased array antenna to be integrated with Microwave Power Module (MPM) is proposed. The array will be scan compensated to maximize the scan volume. It will consist of dipole radiators, balanced feed lines, a planar Marchand balun. The array, not including the microwave power modules, will be very thin (approximately 1 inch).
