A general analysis of a frequency diverse transmit array antenna with a periodic modulated pattern in range, angle and time is presented. This antenna array system makes a continuous scanning in range and angle without using any phase shifters. The scanning is achieved using the frequency diversity by inserting a small amount of progressive frequency shift to each antenna element. The theory shows that there is the same modulation pattern in time, range and angle by taking the remaining two parameters fixed. The simulation results for radiation patterns of a binomial distribution array are presented. The expressions for determining the position and the angular bearing of a target for this type of antenna array system are given. © 2007 IEEE.

Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave Radar for Range Detection
Kaya, Tevfik; Sahin, Enes Burak; Nesimoglu, Tayfun (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave Radar is built using radio frequency techniques. Radar can measure the nearest object's range from 2 to 30 meters with 1-meter range resolution. The design process was carried out by using computer-aided design techniques, and mathematical tools. The hardware prototype was built and measurements were carried out confirming successful operation of the range detection radar.
Frequency invariant beamforming and its application to wideband direction of arrival estimation
Babataş, Eren; Candan, Çağatay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis the direction of arrival estimation of wideband signals using frequency invariant beamforming method is examined. The difficulty with the direction of arrival estimation of wideband signals is that it is not possible to obtain a single covariance matrix valid for the whole frequency spectrum of the signal. There are various methods proposed in the literature to overcome this difficulty. The common aim of all the methods is to obtain a composite covariance matrix for the overall band of the si...
Experimental performance evaluation of direction finding by amplitude comparison for GSM applications /
Karadağ, Savaş; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, radio direction finding (DF) systems are examined, implementation and measurements for GSM mobile phones are done by using 6-element uniform circular Vivaldi antenna array and uniform circular monopole antenna array which is used asWatsonWatt antenna. Although degrading in performance of DF is expected, only one receiver unit is used in angle-of-arrival (AOA) to measure received signal strength (RSS) from each antenna elements to obtain low cost and small sized set-up. Moreover three di eren...
Direction finding with a circularly rotated antenna
Koc, AT; Sen, E; Tanik, Y (2000-06-09)
In this work, a new algorithm for multiple emitter direction finding by using a single antenna moving along a circular trajectory is proposed. The problem is formulated by taking the Doppler frequency shift, caused by the movement of the antenna. into account, and by assuming that the information, hidden in the incoming signals, does not change in the observation duration. The proposed direction finding algorithm is, therefore, based on single snapshot processing and also on the linear prediction method dev...
Frequency tunable microstrip patch antenna using RF MEMS technology
Erdıl, Emre; Topallı, Kagan; Unlu, Mehmet; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Akın, Tayfun (2007-04-01)
A novel reconfigurable microstrip patch antenna is presented that is monolithically integrated with RF microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) capacitors for tuning the resonant frequency. Reconfigurability of the operating frequency of the microstrip patch antenna is achieved by loading it with a coplanar waveguide (CPW) stub on which variable MEMS capacitors are placed periodically. MEMS capacitors are implemented with surface micromachining technology, where a 1-mu m thick aluminum structural layer is plac...
