A beam waveguide (BWG) design suitable for high-power applications is described. The design features a transmit-only, four-port high-gain horn as input to a BWG system with a single parabolic mirror and three flat plates. The use of a single parabolic mirror is such that the highest field concentration is no greater than that caused by the horn itself. The horn is linearly polarized and a grid reflector is used to reflect the orthogonal polarization into the receive feed. A rotatable dual polarizer provides for arbitrary transmit polarization. The dual-reflector system is shaped to provide uniform illumination over the main reflector and therefore maximum gain for the given size aperture. Measured data from a scale model BWG system are presented.
