The theoretical analysis of a planar reflect-array antenna consisting of a rectangular microstrip patch radiators is presented. Such an antenna is to be designed to convert spherical wave radiated by feed horn antenna into plane wave by phasing of reflected wave due to adjusting the patch sizes and arranging them lay principle of Fresnel mirror. The modelling of array antenna is based on the modelling of elementary equivalent waveguide cell consisting patch radiator at the interface between superstrate and grounded substrate layers. Spectral Domain Approach (SDA) of Method of Moments is used to analyse the characteristics of elementary waveguide cell. Theoretical and experimental results are compared.
