Phased Array FAQs

Phased Arrays are a critical component of radar and communication systems. They’re found in weather and military radar systems, air traffic control systems, and even satellite TV and internet.

Phased arrays are useful in applications where the satellite is geo-stationary, but the receiver is moving. Think vehicles, ships, planes, and even cell phones.
With their multitude of individual antenna elements, each with phase control, the antenna radiation pattern can track targets or maintain a constant communications link with the receiver. This simultaneously minimizes interference with nearby cell access points and allows the antenna pattern to be dynamically modified to optimize user experience and connectivity. This is important for some self-organizing networks (SON) approaches.

Phased arrays also provide the ability for terrestrial back haul networks, such as point-to-point systems, to be installed without the need for costly alignment procedures. Without phased arrays, the fixed beam antennas are often manually aligned so that their antenna pattern points to its connection point. This readjustment is costly and inconvenient. Phased arrays save users time and money by allowing automatic realignment for these point-to-point systems.
