This paper presents an innovative Direct Radiating Array (DRA) architecture exploiting aperiodic tilings of the plane. In particular, a pinwheel tiling has been selected in order to fix positions of the different radiating sources, which are constituted by properly shaped elements. Such a choice allows to achieve a good aperture efficiency and very low pseudo-grating lobes while using only two different kinds of radiating elements. Preliminary results are shown and discussed with reference to… CONTINUE READING
