Switched-beam arrays (SBAs) are considered as an attractive alternative to fully adaptive arrays, mostly due to easy installation and inexpensive maintenance. In this paper, a new technique is proposed in order to design dual-band switched-beam dipole arrays. The scope of the proposed technique is to design arrays with balanced radiation characteristics at both frequency bands. This is accomplished by joint optimization of the array's architectural characteristics (topology, elements length and… CONTINUE READING
