Rapid Simulation of Large Phased Array T/R Module Networks

David Leiss and Rulon VanDyke, Agilent Technologies

A new method of simulating large?scale, phased?array networks will be presented. This capability will allow for the analysis and evaluation of large arrays, with thousands of elements, in seconds instead of hours. It can include the entire T/R module chain and model the effect of noise, non?linearities and frequency dependencies. Forward and reverse leakage and isolation effects are also inherently part of this solution. Each T/R module can have independent digital control of its amplitude and phase state, along with the inclusion of fault states and Monte Carlo effects on array performance. Finally this array can then be included as part of an overall analysis of the entire radar system to model RF, DSP and effects such as clutter and jamming, to evaluate performance under real?world conditions.
