Deliverable 10.1: Report on the study of outlying receiving site configurations
The high resolution in the horizontal plane that is desired for imaging purposes can be achieved by equipping radar sites with additional receiving points, so called outlying modules, far outside the core antenna. The task of optimal allocation of these outlying modules (outliers) depends, among other initial conditions, on the configuration and size of the core antenna field. Three layout schemes for outlying modules were considered in this report.
The simple double triangle configuration (shown above) appears to be more favorable, often demonstrating higher resolution than the other tested layouts.
