Abstract:

The simulation theory and software implementation for a space-based radar RF lens are described. Infinite array theory and moment methods are used to simulate the mutual coupling among the wire radiators on each lens array face, feedback coupling from the nonilluminated array to the illuminated array, active progressively phased modules interconnecting the arrays, and arbitrarily shaped thin wire radiating elements. Edge effects are accounted for by iterative techniques. Active impedances, element currents, and power gain patterns are computed. Author
