Invited Speech Abstract:
This talk will display the advantages and disadvantages of the frequency diverse array (FDA) in radar, communication, and electronic warfare applications. FDA will be compared with conventional phased-array(PA) in some applications such as search, tracking or multifunction, and radar imaging. The system implementation related to T/R modules, direct digital synthesis (DDS) and receiver architecture will be discussed, together with the signal processing associated with the TX and RX functions. Criterions to define the efficiency or usefulness of FDA radar and FDA communicationfrom cost-effective and performance point of view also will be discussed. Finally, the technical challenges and possible future investigations will be given.
