Input Arguments

Array object. 

Incoming signals, specified as an Mcolumn matrix. Each column

Directions from which incoming signals arrive, in degrees. If If 

Carrier frequency of signal in hertz. Default: 

Propagation speed of signal in meters per second. Default: Speed of light 
Output Arguments

Received signals. 
Examples
Algorithms
collectPlaneWave
modulates the input signal
with a phase corresponding to the delay caused by the direction of
arrival. This method does not account for the response of individual
elements in the array and only models the array factor among subarrays.
Therefore, the result does not depend on whether the subarray is steered.
