broadside2az

Convert broadside angle to azimuth angle

Syntax

az = broadside2az(bsang)
az = broadside2az(bsang,el), in addition, specifies the elevation angle

Description

example

az = broadside2az(bsang) returns the azimuth angle, az, corresponding to the broadside angle bsang for zero elevation angle. All angles are in degrees and in the local coordinate system.

example

az = broadside2az(bsang,el), in addition, specifies the elevation angle, el.

Examples

collapse all

Return the azimuth angle corresponding to a broadside angle of 45° at 0° elevation.

az = broadside2az(45.0)
az =

   45.0000

Return the azimuth angle corresponding to a broadside angle of 45° and an elevation angle of 20°.

az = broadside2az(45,20)
az =

   48.8063

Return azimuth angles for 10 pairs of broadside angle and elevation angle.

BSang = (45:5:90)';
el = (45:-5:0)';
az = broadside2az(BSang,el);

Input Arguments

collapse all

Broadside angle, specified as a scalar or vector. The dimension of bsang must match the dimensions of az. Units are in degrees.

Elevation angle, specified as a scalar or vector. The elevation angle must be within [–90 ,90]. The dimension of el must match the dimensions of bsang. Units are in degrees.

Example: [5;2;-1]

Output Arguments

collapse all

Azimuth angle, returned as a scalar or vector. The azimuth angles are defined within [–180 ,180]. The dimensions of az match the dimensions of bsang. Units are in degrees.

Example: [35;20;-10]

Broadside Angle

Broadside angles are useful in describing the response pattern of a uniform linear array (ULA).

For the definition of the broadside angle and how to convert between azimuth and elevation, and broadside angle see Broadside Angles. For definitions of the azimuth and elevation angles, see Azimuth and Elevation Angles.
