angle of arrival

[′aŋ·gəl əv ə′rīv·əl]
(electromagnetism)
A measure of the direction of propagation of electromagnetic radiation upon arrival at a receiver (the term is most commonly used in radio); it is the angle between the plane of the phase front and some plane of reference, usually the horizontal, at the receiving antenna.
