Title: MONOLITHIC PHASED-ARRAY ANTENNA SYSTEM
Abstract:
One embodiment describes a phased-array antenna system that is formed as a monolithic structure of a unitary conductive material. The system includes a ground plane and a plurality of antenna transformer elements formed in an array and conductively coupled to a first surface of the ground plane. The system also includes a plurality of connectors formed and conductively coupled to a second surface of the ground plane opposite the first surface, the plurality of connectors being configured to propagate radio frequency signals to or from respective ones of the plurality of antenna transformer elements.
