Methods for monitoring failures in a COMPACT array are presented. A Fourier transform method can be used to monitor a conventional array, as shown in Part I of this two-part series of reports. It is shown in this report that the same method can be extended to cover a COMPACT array. A one-bit transform method is described in this report which can achieve the same monitoring purpose as that of the Fourier transform method without the necessity of performing complex multiplications in the processor. Simulation of these two approaches indicates that they are adequate to detect and locate failure in both the network and the phase shifters in a COMPACT phased array. Author
