In ship, submarine, or airborne satellite communication or multi-function radar operations, dual-band phased array antennas with dual-linear or circular polarizations are needed. We present a dual-band/dual-polarization phased array design using a interleaved cross-dipole radiator and a cavity-backed disk radiator in the same lattice structure. The low band radiator is a disk radiator sitting on top of a dielectric puck in a cavity and the high band radiator is the cross dipole element printed on a low-K dielectric layer above the disk-cavity plane. Dual-linear or circular polarizations can be achieved using these two elements to cover two separate bands with about a 2:1 ratio. This is a relatively low profile, compact and rigid array. Good impedance match for both bands can be obtained over a wide scan volume.
