In transmission, to illuminate the elements of the system (reflector, lens, and so on) with a characteristic function of well-defined amplitude, phase and polarization, in general stable over the required band, and minimizing spillover losses (§9.5.3).
In reception, to collect in an optimal manner the energy concentrated by the focusing system at its focus, in the form of a diffraction pattern (§9.8).
