For the first time, an extended hemispherical integrated lens antenna on a low-cost substrate, FR408HR, is presented. The antenna is designed for industrial and automotive radar sensor applications operating in the 24 GHz ISM band. The proposed antenna has a gain of 15.2 dBi, low sidelobes, and half-power beamwidth of 16 degrees. To reduce the cost, we used low loss materials; Teflon for the lens and low-cost FR408HR as a patch antenna substrate. The size of the reported 24 GHz antenna is
