Abstract

The realization of high performances feeders is of fundamental importance for satellite telecommunication antennas. A powerful numerical technique for the analysis of circular corrugated horn is briefly presented and exploited, jointly with an optimization algorithm, to obtain optimized feeders. The code has been successfully used to develop horns currently mounted on telecommunication satellites. A sample of the most significant projects developed with this CAD environment will be also shown. 1 Introduction Satellite telecommunication systems require high performances in term of extremely low cross polarization, low return loss, high power level, and low level of passiv
