Discover a modern approach to the analysis, modeling and design of high sensitivity phased arrays. Network theory, numerical methods and computational electromagnetic simulation techniques are uniquely combined to enable full system analysis and design optimization. Beamforming and array signal processing theory are integrated into the treatment from the start. Digital signal processing methods such as polyphase filtering and RFI mitigation are described, along with technologies for real-time hardware implementation. Key concepts from interferometric imaging used in radio telescopes are also considered. A basic development of theory and modeling techniques is accompanied by problem sets that guide readers in developing modeling codes that retain the simplicity of the classical array factor method while incorporating mutual coupling effects and interactions between elements. Combining current research trends with pedagogical material suitable for a first-year graduate course, this is an invaluable resource for students, teachers, researchers, and practicing RF/microwave and antenna design engineers.Read more
- Provides a modern treatment of high sensitivity phased array analysis and design that improves upon classical methods such as the array factor and the infinite array approximation
- Combines the state-of-the-art in research with a pedagogical approach to the subject
Reviews & endorsements
'Anyone interested in phased arrays should read this book - it provides an excellent insight into this technology and while aimed at principally at the imaging community has widespread application. The treatment of noise in a mutual coupled array is particularly useful.' Tony Brown, University of ManchesterSee more reviews
'Many headline discoveries in radio astronomy are products of phased arrays. This book deals with new-generation arrays born of the revolution in information processing systems and enabled by contemporary electromagnetic design tools. Covering real exemplar instruments, the book is broad in scope and detailed in its presentation of array design theory, allied signal processing and practical implementations. The authors’ cross-disciplinary approach extends to remote sensing and satellite applications, and they provide much-needed links to mainstream antenna engineering. Aimed at research engineers, the book is also invaluable to graduate students and professionals seeking an overview of leading-edge practice.' Peter J. Hall, Emeritus Professor of Radio Astronomy Engineering, Curtin University, Perth
‘If you are looking for a deep-dive into phased array theory, the math behind it, and how to use computational elecromagnetics to model response, this book gives a thorough treatment to all of that. It is a well-organized textbook providing hundreds of references, as opposed to some books that are merely a collection of published papers … a great textbook for antenna systems designers' Microwaves101 (www.microwaves101.com)
