A set of linear constraints for designing broadband time-domain-element space antenna array processors is presented. The set of linear constraints is used to ensure that a desired look-direction response of the processor over a frequency band of interest can be closely approximated. The design technique is posed in such a way that three types of presteering can be handled: no presteering, coarse presteering, and exact presteering. The relationship that the processor has to other broadband processors is also established. The approach enables various types of errors and mismatches between signal model and actual scenario to be incorporated in the problem formulation.
