Antenna arrays for remote sensing and satellite communications.


Water is the most significant natural resource in Australian agriculture. Due to the limited
manpower and high cost, airborne microwave remote sensing can be the optimum solution
for measuring the soil moisture content of a large area, which can lead to a better utilization
of water. In this presentation, the active and passive remote sensors for the soil moisture
mapping will be discussed along with the current trends on the development of the
associated antenna systems. Beam shaping and scanning techniques of an antenna array
will also be presented. In particular, the high gain single element antenna, low-cost phase
shifter and non-uniformly distributed balanced-phased power divider network designs at
the L-, Ku- and Ka-bands will be presented. On the topics, the presenter will also highlight
the essential design considerations to enable the RF design prototypes from the research
labs into a usable product for the valued industry.
