The sidebands which originate in time modulated arrays can be used for numerous applications, including multipath signal separation and directional power transfer. In the present paper, a method of simultaneously producing a series of beams that are steered towards unique two-dimensional directions is presented by developing the theory of time-modulated linear arrays to time-modulated planar arrays. A planar array is modelled as two linear arrays on orthogonal axes and the binomial and Dolph-Chebyshev time-weighting distributions are applied to a 5 × 5 element array. The output of the array is shown in both the time and frequency domains.
