2 Propagation Delay Across the Array T = d sin θ c The key element in smart antenna testing is the Delay . As the signal arrival at the antenna array travels across the different sensors, it encounters a propagation Delay d θ d sin θ wavefront Signal arrival

6 Array Manifold Each antenna responds by a gain and phase to the incident waveform depending on its angle of arrival and frequency a ( θ ) = [ ζ 1 ( θ , f ) ζ 2 ( θ , f ) e - j π sin θ ....... ζ M ( θ , f ) e - j ( M - 1) π sin θ ] t Array Manifold Vector The complex gain can be obtained by array calibration. M i f i ,..., 2 , 1 ), , ( = θ ζ The steering vector loses its known structure.
7 Spatial Structures The spatial structure is given by the array manifold (AM), which is a set of array response vectors indexed by the angles- of-arrival. The array manifold a( θ ) represents the response of the antenna elements relative to the first element for a wavefront arriving at the carrier frequency from a direction θ . The AM includes the effect of a number of factors, such as array geometry, elements patterns, inter-element coupling, scattering from antenna support structures.
