A complete inkjet printed 3D structure containing broadband antennas in a phased array configuration along with a fixed time delay phase shifter is demonstrated via simulation to allow for a Frequency Scanning Array. Continuous steering as a function of frequency and the necessary broadband antenna structures are explored, which allows for free space wireless communications and remote sensing applications. Finally, the capability of a single antenna to receive from multiple angles simultaneously is described.
