isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.ReplicatedSubarray
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 — Replicated subarray

Replicated subarray specified as a phased.ReplicatedSubarray 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

Replicated Array of Short Dipoles Supports Polarization

Verify that a replicated subarray of phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement short-dipole antenna elements supports polarization.

h = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[1e9 10e9]);
ha = phased.URA([3,2],'Element',h);
hr = phased.ReplicatedSubarray('Subarray',ha,...
    'Layout','Rectangular',...
		'GridSize',[1,2],'GridSpacing','Auto');
isPolarizationCapable(hr)
ans =

     1

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