isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.ConformalArray
Package: phased

Polarization capability

Syntax

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h)

Description

flag = isPolarizationCapable(h) returns a Boolean value, flag, indicating whether the array supports polarization. An array supports polarization if all of its constituent sensor elements support polarization.

Input Arguments

expand all

Conformal array specified as a phased.ConformalArray System object™.

Output Arguments

expand all

Polarization-capability returned as a Boolean value true if the array supports polarization or false if it does not.

Examples

Conformal Array of Short-dipole Antenna Elements Supports Polarization

Show that a circular conformal array of phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement antenna elements supports polarization.

N = 8; azang = (0:N-1)*360/N-180;
h = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement;
ha = phased.ConformalArray(...
    'Element',h,'ElementPosition',[cosd(azang);sind(azang);zeros(1,N)],...
    'ElementNormal',[azang;zeros(1,N)]);

isPolarizationCapable(ha)
ans =

     1

The returned value true (1) shows that this array supports polarization.
