  author={Jerome Euziere and Regis Guinvarc'h and Bernard Uguen and Raphael Gillard},
  journal={IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters},
This letter investigates sparse time-modulated arrays (STMAs). It shows that they provide an efficient solution to achieve specified radiation patterns in radar application with a reduced number of bits to code the weighting coefficients. Interference rejection is also demonstrated.
