Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


We have present a unified framework for the kinematic analysis of transient arrays. In addition to the side-lobes (SL) and the grating-lobes (GL), which are due to phase-interference, we also identified cross-pulse-lobes (CPL) which are an intrinsic wideband phenomenon. It has been shown that the lobe structure is an interplay of several mechanisms and controlled by the problem parameters: the center frequency, the fractional bandwidth, the pulse repetition rate, the inter-element spacing and the total number of elements. It has been shown that the conventional frequency domain dense-array condition d
