A conventional cylindrical array operating at a nominal 5 kHz is the basis of a system that exploits the range advantage of lower frequencies.
Here's how Z goes thermonuclear: About the size of a hockey rink, the machine pumps 19 million amperes of electric current through a bracelet-size, cylindrical array of tungsten wires within about 100-billionths of a second.
The genetic algorithm is implemented on a PC that controls the eight-element cylindrical array. An adaptive, phase-only genetic algorithm applied to a computer model of a linear array has been reported previously.(6) This article extends the previous work to amplitude and phase nulling on an experimental cylindrical antenna array.
The pulse is released vertically through a cylindrical array of 240 fine tungsten wires 4 centimeters in diameter by 2 centimeters long.
For example, in the cylindrical array in Figure 5, we can model the cylindrical array as 4 layers of 2D uniform circular array.
