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

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

Output Arguments

expand all

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.
