Abstract. The effect of fast and slow multiplicative noise on the distortion of the beam pattern of the array-receiver system in the conditions of the smoothing effect of the receiver and taking into account the time of relative lag from the grating elements was analyzed. Expressions are obtained for instantaneous beam patterns of the array-receiver system in the absence and presence of multiplicative noise. It is shown that in the case of action of multiplicative noise the beam pattern of the array-receiver system is obtained by averaging the instantaneous pattern on the grating correctness at a time interval equal to the signal duration. Influence of periodic multiplicative noise on distortion of beam pattern of system array-receiver is investigted. It is shown that for all signals except frequency-modulated, the beam pattern expression is maximized at the time t0=0. It is also shown that the beam pattern distortion of the array-receiver system when exposed to periodic multiplicative noise is less than for the separately considered phased antenna array. The degree of reduction of distortion from smoothing action of matched receiver filter is determined; and the distortion is less, the greater the ratio of the spectrum width of the noise modulation function to the signal spectrum width. Analysis of the influence of fluctuation multiplicative noise on the distortion of beam pattern of array-receiver system for the case of matching with signal of receiver filter is performed. The power-average beam pattern of the array-receiver system is determined through the energy spectrum of the noise modulation function. It is noted that multiplicative noise, all other things being equal, has less effect on the beam-receiver pattern of the system when using broadband pulse signals without intra-pulse modulation and at the same time resolution in range. It is noted that in case of deep phase distortions for gratings with reversible phases, the distortion of the beam pattern of the array-receiver system caused by multiplicative noise is significantly more than those distortions associated with the extremity of the signal spectrum width. The newly smoothing effect of the receiver reduces the expansion of the beam lobe caused by multiplicative noise. An expression is obtained for the average power of the beam pattern of the array-receiver system with normally distributed phase distortions of the signal. The effect of the signal duration on beam distortions caused by multiplicative noise was quantified.

Key words: phased antenna array, fast multiplicative noise, slow multiplicative noise, beam pattern, grating-receiver system, noise modulation function, phase shift.
