Abstract : A single reactively steered adaptive array (RESAA), which contains one driven element and up to eight closely coupled parasitic elements terminated in adjustable reactive loads, does not have sufficient directive gain for many applications. Simulations have been conducted on a configuration in which the RESAA is a subarray in a much larger array.
