A planar phased - array antenna has been constructed from a 15x15 square grid of z - directed monopoles with a length of 0.475 ?, element spacing of 0.29 ?, average directivity of 20.0 dBi across all scan angles, an average H - plane HPBW of 37 degrees, an average E - plane HPBW of 23 degrees, and an e fficiency of 99.6%. Two current distributions are tested: uniform and binomial. The binomial current distribution is selected to minimize the side lobe level.
