A dielectric loaded substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) H-plane sectoral horn antenna has been proposed in this paper. The horn and the loaded dielectric are integrated by using the same single substrate resulting in easy fabrication and low cost. Two antennas with rectangular and elliptical shaped loaded dielectrics were designed and fabricated. These antennas have high gain and narrow beamwidths both in the E-plane and in the H-plane. The results from the simulation and those from the measurement are in good agreement. To demonstrate applications of the array, the small aperture elliptical dielectric loaded antenna has been used to form an array to obtain higher gain and to form a one-dimensional monopulse antenna array.
