Phased Array Design Toolbox v2.5



10 Feb 2009 (Updated )

A toolbox allowing rapid definition and evaluation of 2D and 3D phased array antennas.

% This type of optimisation / beam synthesis is used to steer the array's 
% main lobe in the direction of the wanted signal and place nulls in the 
% direction of the interferers.
% This example is for an 8 element array with a wanted signal at theta=10,phi=0
% and 2 interferers at theta=50,phi=0 and theta=-10,phi=0. See inside this file 
% for details.
% This method relies on knowing in advance the direction of the desired signals 
% and interferers. It is not an Angle Of Arrival (AOA) estimation algorithm.
% This example and the code in lmsoptimise.m function (beam_synthesis directory) 
% has been adapted for ArrayCalc from 'Smart Antennas for Wireless Communications
% with Matlab' by Frank Gross, published by McGraw-Hill.
