This paper deals with the parametric analysis and proper design of parabolic reflector antennas to obtain pencil-beam, cosecant-squared and inverse cosecant-squared radiation patterns for air and coastal surveillance radars. A novel design is introduced to obtain both pencil-beam and cosecant-squared radiation patterns by using the same modified parabolic reflector antenna structure fed by an H-plane horn feeder which can be adjusted as symmetric or asymmetric feeder by changing the bottom flare angle. The analytical regularization method (ARM) is used as a fast and accurate way to solve the problem of E-polarized wave diffraction by parabolic shaped perfectly electrical conductive (PEC) cylindrical reflector with finite thickness. The numerical procedure is initially verified by the analytical and numerical methods, and the calculated radiation characteristics are presented for the proposed antenna configurations.
