31 July 1998 Antenna design for the Millimeter Array
Author Affiliations +
A number of possible antenna designs have been considered for the Millimeter Array. This paper presents two designs which were studied in detail but are no longer being considered, as well as three of the designs currently being studied. The major performance goals for the antennas are listed. Two of the most challenging performance requirements, getting sufficient pointing accuracy and achieving fast position switching, and some of the possible approaches to meeting these challenges are discussed.
