isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.HeterogeneousURA
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

h — Uniform rectangular array

Uniform rectangular array specified as phased.HeterogeneousURA System object™.

Output Arguments

expand all

flag — Polarization-capability flag

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

Examples

Short-dipole Antenna Array Polarization

Show that an array of phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement short-dipole antenna element supports polarization.

sElement1 = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[100e6 1e9],...
    'AxisDirection','Z');
sElement2 = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[100e6 1e9],...
    'AxisDirection','Y');
sArray = phased.HeterogeneousURA(...
    'ElementSet',{sElement1,sElement2},...
    'ElementIndices',[1 2 2 2 1 ; 1 2 2 2 1]);
isPolarizationCapable(sArray)
ans =

     1

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