A planar passive retrodirective antenna (RDA) array with polarization rotation property is proposed in this paper using the substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) technology, which can be used in monostatic radar applications. The proposed RDA array adopts planar bandwidth-enhanced SIW cavity-backed wide slot antennas as the radiation elements. The polarization rotation property can be achieved by using radiation elements in two different configurations. A W-band prototype RDA array with 16… CONTINUE READING
