This paper describes 2-D analysis of a frequency diverse transmit array antenna with a periodic modulated pattern in range using the finite difference time domain methods. The elements of applied linear array are equally spaced and have same phase but operated at different frequencies. The result pattern of frequency diverse array forms range-dependent beam patterns whereas conventional array pattern forms same beam patterns in far field range. This range-dependent beam pattern provides more flexible beam scan options and lessens undesirable interferences such as multipath. The simulation results for radiation patterns of open-ended waveguide (OEG) antenna array are presented. The characteristics of radiation pattern were investigated by the each different simulation for frequency offset change, radiation element space change and array number change.
