Paper Abstract

Recent developments in design of 20 and 44 GHz conformal phased array antennas which use the MMIC technology in conjunction with microstrip array technology are reviewed. A candidate integrated array structure based on a 'tile' approach is described. A fundamental building block of this array is a monolithic subarray consisting of a number of radiating elements, each with its own phase shifter and amplifier on a single GaAs substrate. The array structure contains several thousand radiating elements in a very small area.
