Abstract

The original U-shaped patch antenna is properly modified in this work to provide a compact and broadband antenna configuration with reduced cross-polar effects, well suitable for modern radar applications. The proposed antenna layout is applied to design, realize and test two different prototypes working at P-band and C-band, typically adopted for ground penetrating radar. The experimental results successfully demonstrate a large operating bandwidth between 15% and 20%, a significant reduction of size (about half the standard configuration), and a low cross-polarization level within the operating frequency range.
