The problem of coupling between probability of target blanking (P-TB) and probability of blanking (P-B) in Maisel sidelobe blanker (SLB) is addressed and a complementary auxiliary antenna pattern is proposed for phased array radar systems. The numerical results indicate that the complementary pattern provides an improvement on P-TB and P-B especially for the cases where antennas have poor mainlobe-to-sidelobe ratio.
