Abstract

A novel log-periodic dipole antenna for dual-polarized radar systems is presented. The proposed antenna employs meander line technology and matched loads. The simulated and measured results show that the -6 dB reflection coefficient bandwidth of the dual-polarized antenna covers the desired band of 2-8 GHz and the port isolation is higher than 32 dB, along with -20 dB cross-polarization discrimination for both E- and H-planes.
