Summary: 
A dual-band dual-polarization array antenna with improved bandwidth for an advanced multi-function radio function concept (AMRFC) radar application is proposed. To improve the S-band impedance bandwidth, the proposed antenna uses modified coupling feed patch. The measured bandwidth of the prototype array is 19.8% and 25.7% for the S- and X-band, respectively. The isolation between the two orthogonal polarizations is higher than 15 dB and cross-polarization level is less than -17 dB for both S- and X-bands.
