CALL FOR PAPERS
IEEE Signal Processing Society
IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal processing
Special Issue on Advances in Time/Frequency Modulated Array Signal Processing

Aims and Scope
In recent years, time/frequency modulated array techniques have developed beyond the focus of antenna design to
address promising applications in radar, navigation, communications, microwave imaging, and biomedical engineering.
Specifically, a time modulated array (TMA), by connecting and disconnecting the elements from the feed network, can
create a beampattern with low sidelobes. Two typical frequency modulated arrays are the frequency diverse array (FDA)
and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO). The former produces a range-dependent pattern, whereas the latter
provides increased degrees-of-freedom.
There are still many technical challenges for time/frequency modulated arrays, which include: (a) optimization of array
parameters involving waveform design is required to further assess their affects on performance; (b) although linear
array geometry is predominantly considered in the literature, theoretical analysis and applications of time/frequency
modulated arrays should expose possible benefits of alternative geometries, and direct further studies toward advanced
concepts for novel array structures; and (c) optimal time/frequency modulated array signal processing algorithms should
be devised to address the issues of range, time, angle, and frequency dependent responses for target localization and
dimensionality reduction. There is thus a huge demand for developing innovative, effective and efficient signal
processing algorithms for time/frequency modulated array techniques and systems.
This special issue will touch on a wide variety of signal processing topics for optimal time/frequency modulated array
design and their potential applications. It aims to compile relevant research contributions from various disciplines
including signal processing, radar, wireless communications, antenna array design, geophysics, biomedical engineering,
and applied mathematics to foster future research in this emerging area.
