The innovative Spinning Grating Antenna developed as a result of this course is a low-cost millimeter wave (MMW) antenna that can be applied to collision avoidance systems for both railroads and automobiles. The antenna is unique in that it uses the optical phenomenon of diffraction to define and steer a beam of MMW energy. Unlike electronically steered antennas and more traditional gimbaled antennas, the Spinning Grating antenna is both low in cost and reliable, ideal features for the transportation market. This technology was first developed for radar imaging systems for aircraft autonomous landing guidance.
