Abstract:
The new definition of arbitrary isolation between antennas is proposed according to the microwave network theory. The multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) with the near-field preconditioner is implemented to predict the isolation between multiple antennas on electrically large platforms over a wide frequency range. Experimental results show that the isolation defined in this paper is more practical than the traditional one. Finally the radiation pattern and the isolation results for the ultra-shortwave antennas mounted on full-scale models such as an aircraft and a ship are obtained and discussed, which can give significant instructions to the platform-mounted antennas design.
