A flat antenna was developed in the form of a nonequidistant array of horns located on a disk 4.5 wavelengths in diameter. The main maximum of the directivity diagram is oriented at the angle of 45° to the array. The antenna operates on two orthogonal (vertical and horizontal) linear polarizations and is designed for the use in the scanning aerospace two-channel radiometer of the decimeter wavelength range.
