System object: phased.URA
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

h — Uniform rectangular array

Uniform rectangular array specified as phased.URA 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.


Short-Dipole Antenna Array Polarization

Determine whether an array of phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement short-dipole antenna element supports polarization.

h = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement(...
    'FrequencyRange',[1e9 10e9]);
ha = phased.URA([3,2],'Element',h);
ans =


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