By modification of the classical retrodirective arrays (RDAs) architecture a directional modulation (DM) transmitter can be realized without the need for synthesis. Importantly, through analytical analysis and exemplar simulations, it is proved that, besides the conventional DM application scenario, i.e., secure transmission to one legitimate receiver located along one spatial direction in free space, the proposed synthesis-free DM transmitter should also perform well for systems where there are more than one legitimate receivers positioned along different directions in free space, and where one or more legitimate receivers exist in a multipath environment. None of these have ever been achieved before using synthesis-free DM arrangements.
