Planar Antenna Arrays Based on Difference Sets

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 268)


When building phased antenna arrays, the problem of obtaining a high resolution in two coordinate planes is stated in most cases. Therefore, two-dimensional (mainly planar) antenna systems are widely practised. Since for modem systems a very high resolution is required, phased antenna arrays must be of a very large size, and filling them up with the antenna elements becomes extremely complicated and expensive.
