The effects of short pulses on the beamforming networks of large arrays, with particular emphasis on switch-controlled beamforming networks, are considered in this study. This report includes a comparison of the number of controlled elements in switched beam and steered beam systems, and a discussion of linear and interleaved two-dimensional beamforming networks. Rules for determining element position and number of beams for one system of interleaved subarrays are outlined. The advantages of six-port hybrids in beamforming networks and an analysis of a three-branch six-port hybrid at center band are outlined. Author
