We introduce and evaluate the concept of switched-element direction finding. In a switched-element system, simultaneous data collection occurs on only a subset of the array's N elements at any given time. The data collection interval is divided into subintervals, and at each subinterval a multiplexer selects a different subset of M<N elements to connect to the data acquisition channels. Since the switched-element system only collects data on M channels at a time, hardware costs can be reduced… CONTINUE READING
