The reported and adjusted increase in both margin percentage and dollars over the third quarter of 2015 reflected the ongoing impact of the recent successful FNBW
and Alliance acquisitions, strong organic growth and an improved balance sheet mix.
A multi-objective optimization, such as a tradeoff between PSLL and FNBW, is effectively summarized by a Pareto front [19, 20].
Pareto fronts that reveal the uniquely different tradeoff that each case provides between PSLL and FNBW are presented in Figures 9(a) and 9(b).
(d) When the HPBW is fixed, to reduce the power leakage outside the HPBW, narrow the FNBW
as much as possible by defining the region outside HPBW all as the sidelobe region.
Main beam width (FNBW
) remains unaltered for all cases.
Since for all values of T < 0 the contribution to the fitness function is 0, this method is also inappropriate for obtaining the perfect desired FNBW
Compared with the conventional nine-ring CCRA in , the time-modulated individual [C.sup.1] has much lower PSLL whilst it has acceptable PSBL, though the FNBW
becomes little larger.
To optimize the conflicting parameters, i.e., SLL, SRL and FNBW
in TMLAA, the fitness function is defined as
Clearly, here our objective is to obtain a pattern whose SLLs are less than the tapered sidelobe masks and the FNBW
is almost equal to 10[degrees].
In Table 2 SLL, FNBW
, and nulls depth at [[theta].sub.1] = 30[degrees], [[theta].sub.2] = 32.5[degrees], and [[theta].sub.3] = 35[degrees] are shown.

In this paper, we consider designing antenna arrays with the low maximum sidelobe level (MSL) at a fixed first null beamwidth (FNBW
