Power inversion array in a rotating source environment
Abstract
The steady state performance of the Frost power inversion array is evaluated, assuming constant rotational velocity of the external noise environment in the sin theta domain. The weight vector is solved implicitly in terms of a linear matrix equation. Approximate criteria are derived for weight vector and output power deviation from optimal values, which are then applied to determine the maximum scan rate of a radar sidelobe canceler.
