This paper describes the design and behaviour of a novel compact self-phased integrated mixer active antenna receive array. The array performs automatic beam steering at low IF frequencies by the use of a pilot carrier inserted in-channel with the information signal. The phasing considerations, advantages, properties and practical considerations of this type of array are outlined. An experimental array based on this technique has been constructed to verify the principles involved. Experimental…
