This paper presents a new architecture together with practical results for a high performance analogue retrodirective array architecture with the following significant advantages: (1) It is able to constructively combine signals on receive, as well as on transmit, a feature not seen before on this type of array, (2) It is capable of operating with real life communication received signal levels as low as -120dBm. This work opens the way for fully co-operating Retrodirective arrays for use on un-stabilized co-operating mobile platforms where maximum S/N simultaneously on receive and on retransmit is automatically guaranteed.
