ABSTRACT

Utility of microwave bootlace lens is well established. For broadband and wide scanning network, it is required to op-timize and use features of this lens for better communication and scanning device. This report presents the design of a compact 2D bootlace lens with five focal feed for multiple beam forming. This design will help in reducing phase error and will provide power efficiency and better resolution during target tracking. This design will provide better aperture efficiency and scanning angle.
