As an important part of phased array system, the research on phased array antenna is very necessary. The phased array antenna achieves the scanning beam adaptively by regulating the phase difference between each array element. In this paper, a dual K-band circularly polarized antenna with high broadband, broadband beam, wide axial ratio bandwidth and high radiation efficiency is designed. We combine with the advantages of slot antenna and aperture antenna, use multimode waveguide cavity structure to design an aperture antenna, which is fed to waveguide circular polarizer by slot coupling in order to realize circular polarization radiation. Meanwhile, it has the characteristics of broadband, broadband beam, wide axial ratio bandwidth and high radiation efficiency. A slit antenna is designed by using a multimode waveguide cavity structure and a slit coupling feed to a waveguide circular polarizer is used to achieve circularly polarized radiation. The designed antenna consists of two K-band circularly polarized antenna units, and the spacing between the two units is 9.5 mm, which is fed by a K-band T/R module (Transmitter/Receiver module). In order to study the performance of the pattern in the case of the research group, the 2-unit structure is established. The simulation results of frequency–axial ratio bandwidth are given, and the simulation result of the antenna array is shown. The practical results of antenna design and test are also given.
