Written by a leading authority in the field, Phased Array Antennas provides an in-depth treatment of array phenomena and all aspects of phased array analysis and design, with a new emphasis on developments in the field over the last 10 years. A valuable resource for antenna design engineers, radar engineers, PCS engineers, communications engineers, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students, the Second Edition features a new chapter on array fed antennas and new material on aperiodic (thinned) arrays, connected arrays, switched parasitic arrays, artificial magnetic conductors, and Bode matching limitations.
Robert C. Hansen, PhD, DEng, has had a long and distinguished career in the aerospace industry. Since beginning his career in 1949, he held key posts in a number of leading aerospace companies, including Aerospace Corp., STL, Inc. (now TRW), and Hughes Aircraft Co. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and IEE and is a member of the National Academy of Engineering. Additionally, Dr. Hansen has been a consulting engineer for antennas and systems-related problems since the 1970s.
