A technique is proposed for locating the elements of a flexible phased array sufficiently accurately to form high-quality beams. The technique requires beacon signal phase measurements and baseline measurements, but does not require the accurate beacon-location knowledge which is characteristic of radio navigation schemes. The effects of phase measurement errors and baseline measurement errors on array beam gain and pointing error are predicted and verified by experiments.
