Problem solving based on the algorithm developed in the earlier paper and using GUIDE-the Graphical User Interface Development Environment available in MATLAB® 7.

Is very fast even for a 400 by 400 Near Field data size

This tool enables us to produce educational software which combines the computing and graphics capability of MATLAB with convenient Graphical User Interfaces. The inputs to this project are 2-D ( amplitude and phase i.e complex form ) scan of the E-fields [ E (theta) and E(phi)] at a fixed distance from the antenna on a cylindrical scan surface.
