A new techniqne that significantly minimizes the aliasing error encountered in the conventional use of the fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithms for the efficient evaluation of Fourier transforms of spatially limited functions (such as those that occur in the radiation pattern analysis of reflector antennas and planar near field to far field (NF-FF) transformation) is presented and illustrated through a typical example. Employing this techniqne and a discrete Fourier series (DFS) expansion for the integrand, a method for computing the radiation integrals of reflector antennas and planar NF-FF transformation integrals at arbitrary observation angles with optimum use of computer memory and time is also described.
