A novel design solution for a low-profile fullduplex Satellite-On-The-Move Communications hybrid
scanned phased array antenna for low elevation angle
coverage (down to 10°) is described. The antenna is
operated at Ku-Band. The unique louvered array element
geometry in combination with a spatial filter/ “ray
bending” lens facilitates the shaping of the element
pattern to increase gain at low elevation angles.
Preliminary modelling results using simple ray-tracing
and 3D E simulation indicate that the desired low angle
coverage can be achieved.
