Frequency diverse arrays (FDA) are recently introduced. Not only the phased array and frequency scanning arrays, but also FDA provides electronic beam scanning ability. Moreover, electronic beam scanning is provided without the use of phase shifters or vector modulators. Nevertheless, reported studies on this concept do not provide practically implementable results. In this paper, fundamental expressions of the FDA operation and its typical implementation schemes are reviewed, and an ultimately useful scheme for implementing and FDA is introduced based on linear frequency modulated continuous waveform (LFMCW). The mathematical foundations of LFMCW FDA are developed and used to design a basic proof of concept structure. This structure is also implemented and the measurements related to the implementation are presented with discussions on the results.


Methodology for performance analysis of randomly-spread CDMA systems over multipath fading channels via crosscorrelation matrix non-asymptotic average eigenvalue densities
Ertug, O; Baykal, Buyurman; Unal, BS (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2003-08-07)
A new methodology for closed-form theoretical performance analysis of randomly-spread CDMA systems over multipath fading channels with multiuser receivers is presented. The basis of the analysis is the representation of the random signal to interference ratios at finite system parameters in terms of the eigenvalues of crosscorrelation matrices for which the non-asymptotic average densities are found or known, The methodology presented complements the asymptotic Ruining theory used in similar previous work o...
Digital Wideband Integrators With Matching Phase and Arbitrarily Accurate Magnitude Response
Candan, Çağatay (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-09-01)
A new class of linear-phase infinite-impulse-response digital wideband integrators based on the numerical integration rules is presented. The proposed class of integrators exactly matches the desired phase response of the continuous-time integrator (after group delay compensation) and can approximate the magnitude response as closely as desired by increasing the number of system zeros, i.e., the order of the integrator. The low-order integrators (up to the fourth degree) generated by this technique can be i...
Neural network method for direction of arrival estimation with uniform cylindrical microstrip patch array
Caylar, S.; Dural, G.; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2010-02-01)
In this study, a new neural network algorithm is proposed for real-time multiple source tracking problem with cylindrical patch antenna array based on a previously reported Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking (MN-MUST) algorithm. The proposed algorithm, namely cylindrical microstrip patch array modified neural multiple source tracking (CMN-MUST) algorithm implements MN-MUST algorithm on a cylindrical microstrip patch array structure. CMN-MUST algorithm uses the advantage of directive pattern of microst...
Radar target classification method with reduced aspect dependency and improved noise performance using multiple signal classification algorithm
SEÇMEN, MUSTAFA; Sayan, Gönül (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2009-12-01)
This study introduces a novel aspect and polarisation invariant radar target classification method based on the use of multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm for feature extraction. In the suggested method, for each candidate target at each designated reference aspect, feature matrices called 'MUSIC spectrum matrices (MSMs)' are constructed using the target's scattered data at different late-time intervals. An individual MSM corresponds to a map of a target's natural resonance-related power distri...
Multipath Characteristics of Frequency Diverse Arrays Over a Ground Plane
Cetintepe, Cagri; Demir, Şimşek (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-07-01)
This paper presents a theoretical framework for an analytical investigation of multipath characteristics of frequency diverse arrays (FDAs), a task which is attempted for the first time in the open literature. In particular, transmitted field expressions are formulated for an FDA over a perfectly conducting ground plane first in a general analytical form, and these expressions are later simplified under reasonable assumptions. Developed formulation is then applied to a uniform, linear, continuous-wave opera...
