Reconfigurable aperiodic array synthesis by Compressive Sensing
Paper in proceedings, 2016

Aperiodic arrays represent an attractive technology for applications requiring multiple pencil beams or contour beams, such as in radars, satellite communication and mw-sensor systems. These antennas are typically designed to either produce high-directivity beams over a given scan range or a single beam with a specified complex shape. In this manuscript we present a CS approach for the synthesis of a single aperiodic array layout capable of radiating multiple beams with different shapes The approach aims at designing reconfigurable arrays with least number of elements as well as the optimal excitation set for each of the desired beams. Preliminary results for an array providing both pencil and a flattop coverage are presented.
