Application of the characteristic basis function pattern method to reflector surface inaccuracies and sidelobe modeling
Paper i proceeding, 2013
The Characteristic Basis Function Pattern Method (CBFPM) is applied to compensate for pattern variations that result from surface inaccuracies in a dual-reflector antenna system. Toward evaluating the efficiency of this pattern modeling technique in a realistic environment, the impact of noise in calibration measurements required to solve for the pattern model, as well as that of calibration measurements in non-ideal directions, are considered. © 2013 IEEE.
