Paper Abstract

The focus of this paper is the exploitation of the synchronization properties of coupled, nonlinear oscillators for inertialess beam steering. A discussion of experimental and analytic work concerning a novel antenna architecture that utilizes interactions between nonlinear active elements for phase-shifterless beam shaping is presented. The problems of static and dynamic beam steering of 1- and 2-dimensional rectangular arrays are addressed. In addition, recent progress providing sidelobe reduction via the oscillator amplitude dynamics is reported.
