Antenna Diagnostics on Planar Arrays Using a 3D Source Reconstruction Technique and Spherical Near-Field Measurements

In this paper, we apply a recently developed 3D source reconstruction algorithm to perform antenna diagnostics on a planar array configuration. The test case is a planar X-band slot array measured in a spherical near-field facility and two slots
were intentionally covered during the measurement campaign to test the performance of the algorithm. These measured data have previously been analyzed using two different methods for planar back-projection. For the purpose of comparison, results obtained with a planar reconstruction method based on conversion of spherical waves are also presented.
