IEEE This letter presents a novel and compact antenna array suggesting geometrical modifications in the concept of collinear arrays at millimeter-wave (MMW) spectrum. The extension of the standard narrowband Franklin linear antenna array in a compact two-dimensional (2D) assembly is proposed and multiband response is accomplished in this work which fulfills demands of future 5G systems. The proposed 2D antenna array is designed to operate at licensed frequency bands of 28- GHz and 37-39 GHz recommended by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for 5G wireless networks, as well as at 33-GHz for satellite communications and radio navigation. Measurements validate the triple-band response at the desired frequencies of operation. The proposed antenna array also offers distinguishing performance in terms of high gain and significant efficiency above 70% in all the MMW operating bands.
