What is the difference between the FOV of an antenna and its beam width? I know that from SMAD an antenna has a different beam width based on its geometry. But for some satellites, a FOV is mentioned along with its communication system.

  • $\begingroup$ Antenna design and technology is incredibly complex and un-intuitive for the layman. A FOV specification allows easier understanding of the system. $\endgroup$ – Dragongeek Oct 26 '18 at 9:50
