Abstract

A 1.1-m reflectarray antenna has been designed, manufactured and tested to fulfil the requirements of a satellite antenna in Ku-band that provides South American coverage in Tx and Rx. The reflectarray cells consist of four dipoles for each polarization in two dielectric layers, selected because of their simplicity and high performance. The dipole dimensions are optimized in all the reflectarray cells to accomplish the prescribed radiation patterns, by iteratively calling an analysis routine based on method of moments in spectral domain and local periodicity. The measured radiation patterns of the manufactured antenna have been satisfactorily compared with simulations and with a 3-layer reflectarray previously designed, manufactured and tested for the same mission.
