A Planar Extended Monopulse DOA Estimation Antenna Integrating an RF Multiplier

Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 81, 53-62, 2018
Abstract
This paper proposes a novel planar direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation antenna. The estimation capability of phase monopulse DOA estimation antennas is enhanced by integrating an RF multiplier that detects the phase relation between the sum and difference of the two received signals. So the proposed antenna provides a wide range of estimation whereas the conventional monopulse DOA estimation antennas determine the angles of half space. A prototype antenna has been fabricated, and the proposed concept was successfully confirmed.
