An analysis of periscope antenna systems with curved reflectors, widely used in military and civilian microwave radio-relay communications. A design criterion for optimum curvature is developed that permits performance equal to or exceeding that of comparable flat or parabolic reflectors. Results are presented in the form of gain curves for assessing performance and wavefront plots for determining optimum curvature
