Abstract : During the contract period, we have improved our optimal design algorithms and codes so that they now comprise a practical design tool. We have added the following capabilities: Incorporation of a constraint on the number of effective elements. Ability to restrict sensor weights to be real. Designs with real weights are easier to implement. Combining subarrays. A much cleaner and easier to use system.
