Abstract : Two dimensional beam steering of an antenna array is effected by feeding a plurality of radiating elements from a hybrid matrix that is a beam forming and phasing network in combination with single pole multiple throw switches where switching the various matrix terminals give the elevation beams. Ferrite phase shifters feeding into the single pole multiple switching means provides steering of the antenna beam in the azimuth plane. (Author)
