This paper describes a microstrip array antenna designed to operate at 35 G
Hz. and used as a position detector of moving targets. To obtain a wide det
ection range, the array was arranged to have a relatively narrower beamwidt
h in the elevation plane compared to the beamwidth in the azimuthal plane.
This was achieved by aligning the electric-field plane of each element to t
he array axis. Employing a 3 dB tapered feed network. the array has a sidel
obe level of less than -20 dB, while retaining a wide azimuthal beamwidth.
