Array tapers are traditionally used only on receive, as classical low-sidelobe tapers would result in a significant reduction in transmitted power and most transmit arrays lack element-level amplitude control. As modern arrays move towards solid-state transmitters distributed to each element there is a desire to more fully harness this flexibility. It has… CONTINUE READING
