TITLE:
Phase-shift steer a uniform circular array in the Fourier-series domain
AUTHORS:
J. O. Coleman and W. M. Dorsey
ABSTRACT:
Taylor's 1952 Fourier series for a uniform circular array's pattern here yields simple steering, with minimal distortion, by applying a phase ramp to the weights' DFT coefficients rather than to the weights themselves as for a linear array. Computational examples include steering a simple monopulse difference beam created as the difference between steered beams.
