Paper Abstract

We have designed, built, and tested two 18-inch diameter antennas, a reflector Impulse Radiating Antenna, and a Pulse Radiating Antenna Element. We provide extensive measurements of the two antennas, made both in the time domain range of Farr Research, and at the frequency domain range of Mission Research. We then evaluate these antennas for possible use as a lightweight component in both a Synthetic Aperture Radar system and in a Remote Target Identification system.
