    Abstract

    Uniform placement of array elements limits its maximum frequency due to the formation of grating lobes. While non-uniform element or subarray spacing have significantly lower grating lobes, it reduces aperture efficiency and leads to arrays that are difficult to design and manufacture. We propose a modular asymmetric convex-shaped subarray to construct the array by rotation and translation, filling the aperture without overlaps or gaps. This new approach can achieve lower grating lobes compared to uniform array geometries. It can also lower design, manufacturing and operation costs by offering interoperable subarrays and provide array size flexibility.
