Energy radiation pattern of the signal

Forming of energy radiation patterns of ultra-wideband antenna arrays with a low side-lobe level

A. E. Kalashnikov, Anatoly M. Bobreshov


Analytical expressions have been obtained for calculating an optimal waveform of the pulse exciting elements of an ultra-wideband antenna array. The criterion of optimality is the minimum of integral side-lobe level. The proposed approach enables us to take into account the signal duration and spectrum limitations and also the impulse response of antenna elements.
