Abstract
This paper presents a simulation study of a true-time-delay system for wideband phased array antenna employing a waveguide Bragg grating prism. The Bragg grating prism is constructed of chirped Bragg gratings strategically positioned in order to achieve beam steering capabilities. The effects of double- and single-sideband modulation on the performance of the system are studied. Finally, the effects of apodization of the gratings are also discussed.
