Reflector antennas are frequently used antennas for X-Band Satellite Communication. An X Band reflector antenna placed on a ship will be subject to pattern blockage when satellite antenna is shadowed by a complex structure, here the ship body. This paper aims to analyze the shadowing effect of the ship by using Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD), a high frequency asymptotic method. © 2006 IEEE.
