Class Information
Number: 367/905
Name: Communications, electrical: acoustic wave systems and devices > Side lobe reduction or shading
Description: Acoustic wave echo systems or distance and direction finding systems in which signals received from portions of a transducer array other than the main lobe are diminished or eliminated, the directive pattern of an array being modified by adjusting the distribution of signal phase and/or amplitude over the array.
