This contribution presents the beamforming behaviour of ultra-wideband (UWB) arrays. The arrays consist of multiple ultra-wideband monopole antenna elements which are mounted on a groundplane. The beamforming behaviour is analyzed in the time- and in the frequency-domain. Especially in the UWB - Impulse Radio scenario the time domain characterization of the antenna arrays is very important. The target application of such UWB - Impulse Radio antenna arrays would be a smart antenna system with beamforming and beamsteering potential, to deliver high-definition video or uncompressed audio to mobile devices. Therefore, several antenna array types were set up experimentally and measured in an anechoic chamber as part of the COST 2100 Short Term Scientific Mission UWBeams II.
