I need any information about application of non-rectangular phased antennas array, e.g. array where elements are placed in vertexes of triangle, pentagon, hexagon etc. Can you help me?
Yes, but with a shape of a grid we steel can tune parameters of the array, some times it might be easy to change shape than change feed parameters of radiators in the array. I'll be very hapy if somebody gives me some examples of those arrays or links on papers. I tried to serch in internet, but without success. I didn't find needed information in IEEE AP there are considered only rectangular array. Maybe I serch badly...biff44 said:The shape is not that important. Depending on how you weight the elements, you can get pretty much the same performance as a rectagular phased array (which typically has a lot of the elements thinned out anyway, as they are not needed).
