Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND PRODUCE A LOW COST PLANAR ARRAY OPERATING AT 94 GHZ WHICH WOULD USE A COMBINATION OF Z-CUT QUARTZ MICROSTRIP FOR THE RADIATING ELEMENTS AND LOW LOSS INSULAR GUIDE LINES FOR THE FEED NETWORK. THE INITIAL PHASE I WORK WILL CONCENTRATE ON THE ANALYSIS OF THE PROXIMITY COUPLING BETWEEN THE INSULAR GUIDE FEED LINE AND THE MICROSTRIP PATCHES. THE FIRST PHASE OF THE WORK WILL ALSO ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF THE PHASE SHIFTER IN THE INSULAR GUIDE FEED LINE.
