Abstract:

The report describes techniques for providing agile beam performance at a lower cost than that associated with a phase-steered planar array. Different antenna design techniques that can provide different levels of performance are analyzed to determine their performance limits and relative costs. Candidate techniques are identified that have the potential of providing performance better than that of a mechanically driven antenna and more economical than that of the phase-steered planar array.
