The previously mentioned (1) and (2) are the classical picture of antenna array theory
, where the resulting array factor is a function of [theta] and [phi] only.
With this rather broad scope, the course is valuable both for those interested in phased array theory
and technology itself and also for the system engineer, project manager and radar operator concerned with both benign and electronically hostile conditions.
shows that to avoid ripples in the pattern at the test area the elements must be closer to each other to approximate the pattern of an isotropic radiator.

and Technology," Proc.
Incorporating the most recent developments in phased array technology, Phased Array Antennas is an essential resource for students of phased array theory
, as well as research professionals and engineers engaged in the design and construction of phased array antennas.
