Abstract:

This report studies the antenna synthesis characteristics of linear phased arrays for both the broadside and endfire cases. The underlying technique is based on a modification of the conventional Dolph-Chebyshev side lobe tapering technique. Some of the parameters that are paramount in the design of these arrays are analysed, such as the number of elements N, the phase factor, side lobe levels, directivity, radiation pattern, element separation and impact upon SNR. The results are compared and the optimised configuration is investigated for each case.
