Analysis of Active Reflection Coefficient and Radiated Fields on a Co-Located MIMO Radar System in Transmit Mode
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 114, 103-115, 2022
Abstract
A study of the impact of mutual coupling effects in a co-located multiple input multiple output (MIMO) radar system is presented. Predicted and measured results corroborate that the active reflection coecient (ARC) and beampatterns are impacted by the excitation of each sub-array, the geometric configuration, and their polarization. A uniform linear array (ULA) and a uniform planar array (UPA) layouts are considered. The excitations used in the study are linear frequency modulation (LFM) and Doppler division multiple access (DDMA). A thorough analysis is presented to understand the effects these parameters have on the ARC and on the beampatterns of the radar system.
