isPolarizationCapable

System object: phased.HeterogeneousULA
Package: phased

Polarization capability

Syntax

flag = isPolarizationCapable(array)

Description

flag = isPolarizationCapable(array) 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

Heterogeneous uniform line array, specified as a phased.HeterogeneousULA System object.

Output Arguments

expand all

Polarization-capability flag, returned as a Boolean value 1 if the array supports polarization or 0 if it does not.

Examples

Show that a heterogeneous array of short-dipole antenna elements supports polarization.

antenna1 = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement('FrequencyRange',[100e6 1e9], ...
    'AxisDirection','Z');
antenna2 = phased.ShortDipoleAntennaElement('FrequencyRange',[100e6 1e9], ...
    'AxisDirection','Y');
array = phased.HeterogeneousULA('ElementSet',{antenna1,antenna2}, ...
    'ElementIndices',[1 2 2 2 1]);
