Abstract: This paper shows the main requirements for a system for an unmanned landing of a flying vehicle using a pseudo-conical scanning method. The research work focuses on the system sensor - a linearly polarized phased antenna array with pseudo-conical scanning, for intercepting and controlling the detected object - UAV. The design feed network uses a branch-line coupler for dephasing elements. A functional model of the considered antenna system, with nine radiation pattern beam cases, is created; its simulated and measured parameters are presented.
