Abstract:

An algorithm, primarily intended for design of finite impulse response FIR digital filters possessing equiripple characteristics, is used for design of linear antenna arrays. This algorithm provides the capability of imposing upper and lower constraining functions on the beam pattern or response of the antenna array. Expressions are derived, relating parameters of the response of the antenna array to the parameters of the design algorithm. Interpretations of the effects of varying certain parameters of the array, including the effects of conventional beam steering, are presented by means of examples. Author
