In this paper, a dual-polarized microstrip array antenna with orthogonal feed circuit is proposed. The proposed microstrip array antenna consists of a single substrate layer. The proposed array antenna has microstrip antenna elements, microstrip lines, air-bridges and cross slot lines. For dual polarization, an orthogonal feed circuit uses the Both-Sided MIC Technology including air-bridges. The Both-Sided MIC Technology is one of the useful MIC technologies for realizing a simple feed circuit. The air-bridges are often used for MMICs because it is possible to reduce the circuit complexity. The characteristics of proposed array antenna are investigated by both the simulation and the experiment. Consequently, it is confirmed that the proposed array antenna with the orthogonal feed circuit has dual polarization performance with very simple structure. The proposed array antenna will be a basic technology to realize high performance and attractive multifunction antennas.
