System object: phased.HeterogeneousConformalArray
Package: phased

Polarization capability


flag = isPolarizationCapable(h)


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.HeterogeneousConformalArray 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.


Conformal Array of Short-dipole Antenna Elements Supports Polarization

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

sElement1 = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[100e6 1e9],...
sElement2 = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[100e6 1e9],...
elemAngles = ([0:5]*360/6);
elemPosInner = 0.5*[zeros(size(elemAngles));...
    cosd(elemAngles); sind(elemAngles)];
elemPosOuter = [zeros(size(elemAngles));...
    cosd(elemAngles); sind(elemAngles)];
elemNorms = repmat([0;0],1,12);
sArray = phased.HeterogeneousConformalArray(...
    'ElementIndices',[1 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 2],...
ans =


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