where [[theta].sub.s] is the squint angle of the monopulse beam, [[theta].sub.el] and [[theta].sub.az] are the differences of elevation angles and azimuth angles between the tracking axis and target, respectively, and [[theta].sub.A] is the angle difference between the beam maximum of quadrant 1 and target.

However, relatively little information has been published on monopulse radar sea clutter, particularly on high-resolution coherent monopulse radar sea clutter.
In the monopulse radar system, the angular information of a target is extracted from the monopulse ratio (MR), which is the ratio of the difference channel and the sum channel phasors.

In [15], a technique for obtaining simultaneously wide-angular nulling in the sum and difference patterns of a monopulse antenna that utilizes two additional elements, one at each end of the original array, was investigated.
Our approach is of course motivated by the recently reported success of evolutionary multi-objective optimization techniques to the design of linear arrays [19, 20], time-modulated antenna arrays [21], and monopulse arrays [22].

Recently, some studies show that 4D arrays have promising potentials for some practical applications, such as harmonic beamforming without phase shifting [12,13], direction finding [14,15], monopulse radar design [16,17], adaptive nulling [18,19], and directional modulation for secure communication [20].
