A bifocal dual reflector antenna is similar to and has better scan capability than a classical Cassegrain reflector antenna. The method used in determining the reflector surfaces is a modification of a design method for the dielectric bifocal lens. Computed radiation characteristics of the bifocal reflector system are compared with those of a classical Cassegrain reflector system. The results confirm that the bifocal reflector has superior scanning performance.
