A general analysis is presented of an interferometric acoustooptic signal processor for simultaneous direction finding and spectrum analysis. Topics include amplitude window weighting function, scaling factor, error tolerance analysis, linear periodic vs aperiodic arrays, and comparison between microwave and optical antenna array far-field patterns. Finally a specific design example is given of synthesizing an optimum array.
