Abstract(in English) The objectives of the COMETS advanced mobile satellite communications experiments are to develop basic technology, and to assess the feasibility of future mobile and personal satellite communications in the Ka-band and mm-wave. The system for the experiments consists of a space segment, some mobile/personal stations, and two hub stations. The satellite will be launched into a geostationary orbit in August 1997. CRL is developing the torus reflector antenna for a mobile mm-wave antenna. A prototype was produced using physical optics method. The measured antenna gain of this prototype is about 17 dB, main beam beam-width of the elevation is about 15 deg and that of azimuth is about 10 deg.
