Abstract

A comparison is made between a conventional Vivaldi antenna and a spline-shaped end-fire antenna for use in small ultra wideband radar systems. The evaluation places emphasis on the linearity of the input impedance phase and the directivity of the small antennas for low-dispersion spatial selectivity.
