Graduate course will provide the basic knowledge and the most important design trade-offs of phased array antennas that are used for civil and military applications. This class will put emphasis on the critical evaluation of the performance of phased array antenna systems, especially for atmospheric applications. Factors that are important for high-performance radar and communication systems, such as scanning performance, phased array antenna architectures, feed-networks, mutual coupling, infinite and finite active arrays, T/R modules and technologies, multibeam arrays, adaptive arrays and sidelobe cancellers, will be introduced.
