isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.ULA
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 line array

Uniform line array specified as a phased.ULA 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

ULA of Short-Dipole Antenna Elements Supports Polarization

Show that an array of phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement antenna elements supports polarization.

h = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[1e9 10e9]);
ha = phased.ULA('NumElements',3,'Element',h);
isPolarizationCapable(ha)
ans =

     1

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