The aim of this paper is to present a new method allowing radar digital beamforming (DBF) with only one receiver channel. The key point is the use of a particular spatiotemporal waveform transmitted by an active phased array antenna. By properly choosing the temporal modulation applied on each of the transmission elements, one can transmit different signals in different directions, allowing (under certain hypotheses) angular localisation with only one receiver channel. The major advantage is
