A particular class of multiple beam-forming network, which performs the discrete Fourier transform operation on the outputs of a linear receiving array, is examined in detail. A general synthesis procedure, based on the 'fast Fourier transform' method of computing the discrete Fourier transform, is described, which also encompasses the microwave networks known as Butler matrices.
