This study presents a planar Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) antenna array based on six identical UWB antenna elements. The feed network for the proposed structure is realized with Wilkinson power dividers. Dolph-Chebyshev distribution has been used to provide tapered feeding for the radiating elements. The fabricated array, with a compact size of 200 90 mm2, operates over the frequency band from 3.8 to 10 GHz with a return loss less than 10 dB. Moreover, the measured peak gains of the array range from 5.5 to 10.8 dBi against the frequency. The experimented and simulated results are in good agreement. A time domain study has been performed to assess the suitability of the designed array for UWB applications.
