Paper Abstract

It is argued that an antenna element based around the Luneburg lens best meets the electromagnetic requirements of the proposed Square Kilometer Array. There are a number of practical difficulties in implementing such an antenna element which are addressed with means of overcoming them suggested. Some initial calculations on the electromagnetic performance of selected lens configurations are presented.
