The development of dual-frequency (14 and 35 GHz), dual-polarization microstrip antenna arrays is presented for the first time on liquid crystal polymer (LCP) multilayer technology. Some of the properties of LCP, such as multilayer (three-dimensional) vertical integration capability, good electrical and mechanical properties, and near-hermetic nature, make this substrate a practical choice for the design of low-cost antenna arrays that can be integrated with remote sensing applications operating in the Ku and millimeter-wave frequency bands. This work illustrates the potential of LCP as a low-cost, "all-package" solution for developing compact, flexible, antenna arrays that can be used in future communication and remote sensing systems.
