RE: RE: Time to throw your az-el rotors out?



There was a transition period where some aircraft radar used hybrid
antennas.  The azimuth scan was done in the usual mechanical way, and the
elevation scan was done with phased array.  Much simpler to design and
build, but the technology improved so quickly that there is little benefit
now.
