AbstractA doubly-curved reflector has been designed which will produce, from a point source, a shaped beam having a cosecant distribution of energy in both the vertical and horizontal planes. The technique used is an extension and modification of the method originally formulated by Chu. This method is based on the principles of conservation of energy and the laws of geometrical optics. Patterns are given for an experimental antenna using this modified method. Good agreement is obtained between the experimentally measured patterns and the calculated design patterns.
