Public classPhasedArrayElementFactor
Abstract base class for a phased array element factor.
Public classPhasedArrayGainPattern
A RadioFrequencyGainPattern for modeling planar phased array antennas. The phased array model consists of many radiating elements. Each element is modeled as an isotropic pattern. By modifying the excitation (amplitude and phase) of each element differently, a phased array antenna can electronically steer its maximum gain toward a particular direction or main radiation axis. A phased array antenna not only can steer its maximum gain in a particular direction, but it can also steer nulls toward other directions in an effort to prevent radiation to and from other directions. The act of altering each element's excitation is effectively accomplished through the assignment of weights to each element. This set of weights for a particular direction is called a steering vector and each weight is a complex number.
Public classRadioFrequencyAntennaSignalProcessor
Represents a receiving radio frequency (RF) antenna. By default, an instance of IsotropicGainPattern is used as the gain pattern and signals not within the band MinimumRfFrequency to MaximumRfFrequency are rejected from the output.

Public classStaticDirection
Type which associates a direction, in the form of a UnitCartesian, with a TimeIntervalCollection of availability intervals and an optional weighting metric.
Public classStaticDirectionsProvider
A DirectionsProvider which provides static directions using a list of StaticDirection instances. The DirectionsEvaluator provided by the GetDirectionsEvaluator(EvaluatorGroup, ISignalSource, Vector, Axes) method when called to evaluate, loops over the list of StaticDirection checking each instance for availability against the evaluation time. If available, the evaluator constructs a new instance of WeightedDirection using the Direction as the direction and WeightingMetric as the weighting metric. The evaluator then returns a list of the WeightedDirection instances corresponding to the available static directions.
