Synthesizing Pattern with Broad Nulls through Orthogonal Method
Based on the Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization method utilized for pattern synthesis of linear array without constraints, null derivative constraints are proposed to implement pattern synthesis with broad nulls. The advantage of the simplified computation resulted from steering vector orthogonalization in unconstrained orthogonal approach is maintained, and the uniform or non-uniform linear array pattern synthesis can be realized by this method. The experimental results show that the null constrained orthogonal approach can fulfill linear array pattern synthesis with constrains such as null constrains, first-order and second-order derivative null constraints.
