Course on Electromagnetic Design of Antenna and Phased Array for Military Applications

There is a growing interest in phased array antenna systems, stemming from radar, mobile communications, satellite broadcasting and radio astronomy. This course introduces the principles, design and application of array and phased array antennas. Illustrated with numerical simulations, practical experiment and numerous worked examples, the course is a valuable tool and reference source for those wishing to improve their understanding of array antenna systems.

The course will cover the following topics: Introduction to antenna characteristics and the selection and design of antenna elements, The design and performance of linear, planar and circular arrays through discussion of array principles and characteristics, Array feeding, means of phase shifting, active element pattern and mutual coupling, Radome and FSS design and performance, impedance blending and matching, Techniques to improve array performance, including sequential rotation and reactive loading. Specialist array design such as sparse and conformal, Electromagnetic modelling of antenna and array performance, Array and phased array antenna measurements.
