US Patent:
4668955, May 26, 1987
Filed:
Nov 14, 1983
Appl. No.:
6/551379
Inventors:
Allen E. Smoll - Palo Alto CA
Assignee:
Ford Aerospace & Communications Corporation - Detroit MI
International Classification:
H01Q 320
US Classification:
343761
Abstract:
A method and apparatus are provided for transmitting a microwave signal as a beam having a wavelength small as compared to the size of the reflecting surfaces, wherein a main reflector is stationary with respect to a sub-reflector and the main reflector is motional with respect to the feed. The invention comprises rotating the sub-reflector about a first rotational axis transverse and preferably orthogonal to the guide axis, the first rotational axis being on the vertex of a secondary reflector, thereby directing radiation from a fixed feed to the motional sub-reflector. The primary reflector and sub-reflector are disposed relative to one another to share a common focus or confocal point.
