Abstract : The objective of the experimental test program was to demonstrate the feasibility of the Time Scanned Array Radar (TSAR) beam steering techniques by performig tests on a UHF LINEAR ARRAY MODEL. A principal motivation for this new phase steering or true time delay steering technique is cost reduction of array radar by removing all active beam steering components from the array element level. Experimental and theoretical results were obtained and compared. The result of this program is the conclusion that TSAR beam steering can be successfully implemented into a transmit or receive linear array to beam steer wideband or narrowband signals. A preliminary outline of a UHF planar array for future effort utilizing TSAR beam steering is included. (Author)
