This paper gives an overview on the research status, developments, and achievements of subarrayed array processing for the multifunction phased array radar. We address some issues concerning subarrayed adaptive beamforming, subarrayed fast-time space-time adaptive processing, subarray-based sidelobe reduction of sum and difference beam, subarrayed adapted monopulse, subarrayed superresolution direction finding, subarray configuration optimization in ECCM (electronic counter-countermeasure), and subarrayed array processing for MIMO-PAR. In this review, several viewpoints relevant to subarrayed array processing are pointed out and the achieved results are demonstrated by numerical examples.
