Abstract
It is of great practical value to study the blended rolled edge of reflector used in Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR). Taking a rectangular aperture reflector as the benchmark, a reflector with ideal blended rolled edge is obtained by means of parameter iterative optimization after accurately establishing the position relationship between the local and global coordinates where the blended rolled edge is located, precisely deriving the geometric equation of the main reflector zone and blended rolled edge zone in the local coordinate, and optimizing continuity condition of curvature radius. On the basis, a blended rolled edge reflector with minimum operating frequency of 0.8 GHz and quiet zone size of 2 m is designed. The simulation results show that the performance of the reflector with blended rolled edge obtained by the proposed method is better than that obtained by the traditional construction method, and the designed reflector has excellent performance. The work in this paper provides a theoretical support for the optimal design and engineering application of the blended rolled edge reflector.
