Compact Ultra-short Pulse Fuzing Antenna Design and Measurements

We consider here antemas that could be usefid as part of a fize radar for penetrating munitions. The concept requires radiating an ultra-short pulse using an antenna with maximum gain and a compact design. Both lens and reflector Impulse Radiating Antennas (IRAs) are recommended as suitable candidates for this purpose. We summarize the properties of these… (More)
