The directional patterns (or directivity curves) and the signal/noise performance of fourteen different arrangements of a strip array are discussed and tabulated. The fourteen arrangements include five used for the determination of the direction of a received signal by a null method. The noise concerned includes the thermal-agitation noise of the array, the noise generated in the receiving amplifiers, and to a large extent also noise arising in the medium of transmission.

The Noise Factor used in these calculations is shown to be closely related to the Directivity Index (or Power Gain) in ordinary tapered arrays. The paper is written in terms of electro-acoustic arrays, but applies equally, in principle, to electro-magnetic arrays.
