The aim of this article is to show a new technique for calculating the Radiation Pattern of arbitrary geometry reflector antennas. We use the Graphical processing technique developed in this group for Radar Cross Section Analysing [1] to obtain the whole geometry information of the reflector antenna necessary to obtain his radiation pattern. This program can obtain the first contribution using Phisical Optics technique, but also can obtain second order contribution.

In order to analize the electromagnetic fields generated by perfectly conducting bodies whichever it is its geometry, the Boundary Element Method is applied.
The basic formulation and associated items (integral equations to solve, surface and thin wire discretization, fields interpolation and numerical integration) are comented.
Results of problems of radiation are given and compared with available analytic solutions, which demostrate the good accurancy of the method.

One of the most difficult problems in the RCS prediction of a complex target is the analysis of the cavities existing at the air inlets and outlets of engines. The geometrical complexity of these structures makes difficult the analysis by modal, ray or beam techniques, while their huge electrical size makes computationally prohibitive the analysis by matrix methods. For these reasons, we have developed an iterative spectral propagation algorithm which can be used to calculate the RCS of electrically intermediate or large cavities with certain geometrical features.

A free-space measurement system in the 2-JBGHz frequency range is used to measure the reflection and transmission coefficients of planar samples. The complex electric permittivity and the magnetic permeability are calculated from the measured values of S11 and S21. The measurement system consists of broadband transmit and receive antennas, a network analyzer, mode transitions, and a computer. Error due to multiple reflections between antennas via the swjace of the sample are corrected by using a free space T.R.L. calibration technique.

Primary feeds have been designed to operate simultaneously in two frecuency bands and two cross-polarizations. The multimode generalized scattering matrix has been used to characterize the circular waveguide discontinuity. Input impedance of coaxial line to circular waveguide feed has been computed.

Conventional first order algorithms used in microwave tomography often fail to reconstruct biological bodies due to their high contrast in permittivity. The paper presents several methods to improve the applicability of the algorithms and new reconstruction procedures suitable to high diffracting bodies, using optimization, frequency diversity, analytical continuation and matched plane wave synthesis techniques. The validity of the proposed algorithms is investigated by numerical simulations and experimentally.

Capabilities of a microwave imaging system working in the air by using two crossed linear arrays are described. The analytic expressions of the focalization procedures are derived and resolution and available volume of reconstruction are discussed. Finally, some experimental images corresponding to two dielectric objects are also shown.

A method is described for calculating the scattered fields from conducting bodies and concentric multilayered cylinders, when they are illuminated by a wave with no z-axis variation. The method is based upon descomposition of a vawe in a cylindrical wave series centered in the object, so that contour conditions can be applied.
The exact scattered fields are calculated via Fast Fourier Transform routines. A generalisation of the method can lead to computation of fields scattered by separated single cylinders and cylinders containing non-concentric cylinders.
