This paper briefly reviews the fundamentals of phased array operation. Array systems are categorized as preamplifier and post-amplifier beam-forming techniques. The relative advantages and disadvantages of each are discussed, as are considerations in space applications. Several exemplary array antenna configurations are also discussed. Particular comment is made on the principal environmental considerations, especially as related to the application of an array antenna.
