Abstract

Stacked concentric circular antenna arrays (SCCAA's) supporting both the scanning mode and the tracking mode are optimized in both the azimuth and elevation planes. The gbest-guided artificial bee colony algorithm (GABCA) is adopted to optimize the dual-mode field patterns of thinned SCCAA's. Performance comparison of the GABCA with conventional ABCA and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms is also presented.
