Abstract: Based on the developed dual-polarization module in the form of a four-element array of printed patches, solutions for two antenna systems of X and Ku bands are implemented. The parabolic reflector antenna for Ku-band satellite communication systems with the feeder in the form of the four-element array of printed patches with switchable linear polarization is investigated. The feeder forms axisymmetric radiation with high-quality linear polarization in the wide frequency band. The reflector antenna with the aperture diameter of 1.2 m in the Ku range is characterized by a gain of 39-41 dBi. The antenna array for the X-band radar made on the basis of modules of printed patches four-element arrays with switchable linear polarization is investigated. The antenna array is characterized by scanning sectors of 70° and 65° in orthogonal planes. The presented parabolic antenna and antenna array are intended for use as part of radio-electronic complexes installed on moving objects.
