Abstract : The patent describes a phase-array antenna system which looks at all positions, rather than at one point, within its field of view, simultaneously. This is accomplished by modulating the incoming wave-front with a repetitive wide band signal in each antenna element. The system comprises a plurality of antennas, a plurality of modulators operatively connected to a modulation signal generator, a signal combiner device and a signal analyzer.
