Abstract

Retro-directive arrays provide retransmission of signals back towards their source direction without prior knowledge of the source location. In this paper we explore the use of an active circular retro-directive array for up to 3600 retro-directive monostatic coverage. We also show by selectively choosing which bank of array elements are to be conjugated how we can control sectoral retro-directive coverage. Simulated and experimental results are provided for a 16-dipole element active circular retro-directive array at 2.4 GHz.
