Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1821366A1] The antenna has a conical shaped stator (31) provided with an input (34) and an output (36), and a conical shaped rotor (32) rotating inside the stator, where the space between the rotor and the stator forms a waveguide. The rotor has a diametral waveguide e.g. path, that guides a microwave from the input to the output of the stator. A foster system has a focusing system (22) e.g. focusing radome, provided with a focusing lens (51) whose focal spot is situated at the output of the stator. The system (22) is integrated in an aerodynamic shaped radome of the antenna.
