In this thesis, a folding mechanism with 1 degrees of freedom is designed and constructed for a two-antenna radar system. The optimum mechanism for the problem is systematically selected among the conceptual mechanism alternatives. Then, a detailed synthesis and analysis study is performed on the selected mechanism, and the mechanism is implemented to the geometry of the radar system. By performing modal and strength analyses on the 3D model of the folding mechanism created during the implementation study, the design is improved and finalized according to the system requirements.
