- TITLE:
- SOCP design of monopulse sum and difference beams for a uniform circular array
- AUTHORS:
- W. M. Dorsey and J. O. Coleman
- ABSTRACT:
- Classical sum and difference beams for angle measurement in amplitude-comparison monopulse systems are constructed by adding and subtracting narrow beams slightly offset in pointing angle. Here instead beams with sum and difference behavior in azimuth are synthesized using second-order cone programs applicable to any array for which embedded complex element patterns are known. The computational example here is specific to a uniform circular array (UCA) because it uses embedded element patterns obtained by rotating a prototype pattern through angles uniformly spaced around the circle. That prototype was computed through electromagnetic simulation of a UCA of simple patch elements.
