Waveguide Slot Array Antenna Design
Slotted array antennas are popularly used in radar applications, in which case design standards require mechanical robustness and high gains. Because the power transmission of radar antennas is very high, slot array antennas are preferred alternatives to planar arrays. Read on for a simple guide to the basic elements of slotted array antennas. Slot antennas in waveguides provide an economical way of the design of antenna arrays. The position, shape and orientation of the slots will determine how (or if) they radiate. Figure 3 shows a rectangular waveguide with a drawn with red lines snapshot of the schematic current distribution in the waveguide walls.
