Why You Must Get EIRP Correct for Your Phased Array
Knowing and properly specifying your EIRP – Effective Isotropic Radiated Power – is essential for your phased array.
If you get this wrong, your phased array will likely fail.
In this white paper, I will describe EIRP with specific application to communications and radar systems that have phased arrays.
I will also include the equation for calculating EIRP, and an example of how this is used for a satellite communication link.
In addition, I will discuss the main reasons why EIRP is essential for your phased array.
