Synthesis of Phased Arrays in Complex Environments with the Multilevel Characteristic Basis Function Method
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 92, 347-360, 2009
Abstract
The aim of this paper is to present a method to carry out the synthesis of large phased arrays when they are affected by complex environments which can influence the radiation pattern. The synthesis is performed with the help of the Multilevel Characteristic Basis Function Method to calculate a matrix relating input voltages and the far field pattern samples. The method is illustrated with the synthesis of a Secondary Surveillance Radar antenna on a turret containing multiple obstacles.
