This paper presents the analysis and design of aperture-coupled microstrip patch antennas and arrays fed by an dielectric image line. A theory based on the cavity model of the microstrip patch antenna and the change in the modal voltage of the image line at the aperture was developed to analyze the single element aperture-coupled microstrip patch antenna. The theory developed was combined with the array theory to design linear traveling wave arrays at X-band and Ka-band frequencies. The required taper in the excitations of the individual patches of the array was achieved by varying the aperture dimensions. Experiments show very good results for the antennas and the arrays
