HD-02: Timed Arrays

Randy L. Haupt

Sunday, July 19, 13:00 - 17:00


The term "phased array" implies a narrow band approach due to the term "phased". Thus, this short course title replaces "phased" with "timed" and concentrates on arrays designed for wide instantaneous bandwidth. Phase shifters produce beam squint and time domain dispersion for wideband signals. This short course explains a variety of issues related to antenna arrays in the time domain. Material for the course is based on the book Timed Arrays by Randy L. Haupt, Wiley-IEEE Press, 2015.


Randy L. Haupt received the BSEE from the USAF Academy (1978), the MS in Engineering Management from Western New England College (1982), the MSEE from Northeastern University (1983), and the PhD in EE from The University of Michigan (1987). He is Professor and Department Head of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Colorado School of Mines and was an RF Staff Consultant at Ball Aerospace & Technologies, Corp., a Senior Scientist and Department Head at the Applied Research Laboratory of Penn State, Professor and Department Head of ECE at Utah State, Professor and Chair of EE at the University of Nevada Reno, and Professor of EE at the USAF Academy. He was a project engineer for the OTH-B radar and a research antenna engineer for Rome Air Development Center early in his career. He is co-author of the books Practical Genetic Algorithms, 2 ed., John Wiley & Sons, 2004, Genetic Algorithms in Electromagnetics, John Wiley & Sons, 2007, and Introduction to Adaptive Antennas, SciTech, 2010, as well as author of Antenna Arrays a Computation Approach, John Wiley & Sons, 2010. Dr. Haupt is a Fellow of the IEEE and Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES).
