Far Field Pattern: Reconfigurable

In cooperation with the ELEDIA LAB of the University of Trento, LEMMA researchers developed an innovative and computationally effective approach to the synthesis of optimal sum and difference patterns via linear sparse arrays composed by the minimum possible number of elements [1]. The proposed technique takes advantage of the results achieved in the equispaced-arrays case as well as from the Compressive Sensing theory.
