Abstract

The most prominent component of any radar system is the antenna. For applications where speed, reliability and versatility are essential, such as air and space surveillance, the phased array antenna is the best choice because it can be steered electronically. The project focused on the design of a program that outputs the geometry of a planar phased array based on the user's desired beamwidth, steering angle, and frequency. The final product is an interactive MathCAD Electronic Book.
