Example text

In this way, the aperture’s amplitude taper loss is reduced, increasing the antenna’s efficiency. Typically, the reflector edge illumination for nonshaped designs has a value about 10 dB 38 Chapter Two below the feed’s peak gain level on its axis. This illumination level [16] results in a compromise between amplitude taper loss and spillover loss that depends on the portion of the antenna feed’s pattern that does not illuminate the antenna. Shaping techniques applied to both the subreflector and radiating reflector surfaces result in a more nearly uniform amplitude aperture distribution that increases the antenna’s efficiency.

In practical system designs, neither the antenna nor the interface electronics are ideally matched. As a result, multiple reflections between the antenna and electronics occur giving rise to amplitude and phase ripples over the system’s operating bandwidth. 5 −5 Return Loss, dB Figure 1-10 Relationship between return loss and VSWR variation with frequency are not. Amplitude and phase ripple degrades signal detection performance and generally a specification is placed on the tolerable ripple. One approach to addressing the ripple uses coherent error statistics [5].
