rrays Arrays e basic principle of antenna arrays (a The basic principle of antenna arrays, (a radiating system that has more than one lement {antenna}) is that the far field element {antenna}), is that the far field behavior of an antenna can be described as a nction of the physical placement and the function of the physical placement and the radiating characteristics of the component lements elements.

rrays Arrays ntenna arrays are typically used to create a Antenna arrays are typically used to create a specific far field pattern. is ehavior is constructed in the following This behavior is constructed in the following manner. In the case of far fields we can make e assumption that the observer is the assumption that the observer is sufficiently far away so that the paths from e antennas to the observer are the antennas to the observer are approximately parallel.
