Petro N. Melezhik, Yu. B. Sidorenko, S. A. Provalov, S. D. Andrenko, S. A. Shilo


Design principles of diffraction-type planar antennas which can be successfully used for building antennas systems with required parameters including formation of radiation pattern with special shape are presented. All main characteristics of the studied planar antenna with open electro-dynamic structure of millimeter band on the example of antenna system used in the modern radar complex are obtained.
