Understanding Phased Arrays

ABOUT

While the unique properties of antenna arrays have been exploited in operational systems for some time, it is only with the widespread deployment of phased arrays that something approaching the full potential of antenna arrays has been attained. The unique properties of antenna arrays and how they enhance the performance of systems which utilize them will be considered with the emphasis on phased arrays. While antenna arrays do have a number of significant benefits, they also have a number of disadvantages – or at least unique challenges – which will also be considered in an attempt to provide a balanced view of this technology. A brief summary of some fully-digital concepts such as MIMO will also be provided to illustrate how antenna-array technology might develop moving forward. Examples of operational systems will be discussed to show how antenna-array technologies have led to unique operational capabilities.

PRESENTER

Warren du Plessis received the B.Eng. (Electronic) and M.Eng. (Electronic) and Ph.D. (Engineering) degrees from the University of Pretoria in 1998, 2003 and 2010 respectively, winning numerous academic awards including the prestigious Vice-Chancellor and Principal's Medal. He has been working in EW and radar since 2006 and is currently Associate Professor at the University of Pretoria. Warren is a Senior Member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a Lifetime Member of the Association of Old Crows (AOC), and a member of the AOC Aardvark Roost Board. He is author of 46 published and accepted peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, and is lead or sole author of 30 of these. While best known for his work on cross-eye jamming, Warren has also published in a number of other fields related to EW including thinned antenna arrays, communications intelligence (COMINT), and the role of EW and its relationships to other similar fields.
