Abstract : The object of the invention is a method of electrical control of the beam of an antenna array accomplished with the aid of commutators of the phase of high-frequency radiating elements. The commutation of the radiating elements is determined through the length of the interval of commutation (switching over) which is calculated in accordance with the formula A = B - C sin alpha, where B and C are the values constant for each concrete antenna, and alpha is the declination of the cophasal front of the beam with relation to the plane of the array and the supply of the radiating elements occurs both in parallel and in sequence through a waveguide along which there are arranged the radiating elements.
