Abstract

A quad petal wide band horn is proposed with improvements over prior similar designs to meet all the requirements of the solicitiation. The horn offers dual independant polarizations with high cross pol. isolation so the antenna does not need to be rotated for multi-pol. measurements. The improvements help to minimized back and side lobes while enhancing the gain towards achievement of the requirements. The horn is made of light weight materials resulting in an assembly weight within the required 300 pounds and volume within the solicitation's allowable 10' cube volume.
