The backfire principle is an effective technique for improving the performance of an antenna, without adding much to its physical dimensions or weight. In this paper a backfire antenna with multiple flat reflectors is suggested. The performance of this backfire antenna is compared with those of a single and double back reflector backfire antennas operating at the same design frequency of 9.35 GHz. The measurements indicate a remarkable improvement in the gain and mainlobe to sidelobe-level and a significant increment in the bandwidth of the antenna. The dimensions of the antenna are optimized to give maximum directive gain.
