January 24, 2019 – Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has developed a slotted waveguide array antenna made of injection-molded resin which has been demonstrated to outperform conventional patch array antenna in side-lobe characteristics, cross-polarization characteristics and electric power efficiency, as well as offer reduced weight and cost. Mitsubishi Electric’s new antenna will enable radar systems to achieve enhanced observation range and accuracy and wireless communication systems to achieve greater communication capacity and speed. The company will now begin deploying the antenna for various applications, including as weather, airport radar remote-sensing radar and satellite communications.
